Seems to me unless the bearings are cranked down super tight the axle is just going to spin in the hub.

I gather reviews are mixed:

Apparently most cards are a bit too floppy and/or the picks fall apart quickly.

People who can afford the $25 for that thing could get 100+ picks (of FAR more ideal types of material). For a couple buck more you can get them personalized.

Some people just have to feel like they are doing everything the cheapest way possible. If it doesn't work that just reinforces their belief they've done the right thing and saved a few pennies. That mindset is what kept the American auto industry going through the 70s and 80s. It also explains the rise of the WinTel PC. Of course the reailsation that spending a dollar to save nickel is is false economy is what eventually killed both. You'll never convince Depression babies like my mother that anything but the cheapest up front cost is ever appropriate though.

My great grandmother had a box of string in her cellar marked "string - too short to use."

I don't know if I'd blame the depression though. We're a strange bunch.

My mother's parents were depression babies, but they taught her something akin to the Vimes "Boots" Theory - spend more up front, buy quality, fix it, maintain it, buy less often, save money.

My dad was brought up in a slightly different school by his parents, "Buy the cheapest thing that works, fix it as needed, maintain it properly, and when it proves inadequate, build something better from 2x6 lumber and wrought iron - don't wanna make it too heavy, now." (My grandpa needed a wheelbarrow, so he built one. I human waste you not. When I was a kid, I had a bed, bookshelf, toy box, and sandbox in the yard, all constructed by my dad, along with a lot of toys that were homemade as well.)

But between my mom and a couple bouts with learning the hard way, he learned to be less penny-wise, less pound-foolish, and developed an appreciation for mass produced consumer goods.

Both of them, though, were taught "fix old, don't buy new." That's less common now, and it's a lesson I'm only beginning to incorporate myself.
