About this deal

I'm glad I got the Big Bite for the times I need it, but there's no doubt that the regular Crop-a-Dile is the one I use 95% of the time, so unless you anticipate needing the extra reach, I'd definitely go for that. When punching with the original, if you wanted a constant depth of holes from the edge, you needed to set a metal sliding piece and screw it into place. At the end of the day I imagine a scrapper or someone into altered / 3d projects is likely to use one more than most card-makers. I didn't realise there was a new one with a smaller grip; I know when the first one came out some people had trouble holding it, so if you have small hands it could be worth considering.

If you need help remembering the correct combinations to use with each type of eyelet, the original Crop-a-dile on-line tip sheet can help you with that. I don't use them decoratively too much but I use the hole punch part more often for brads, threading ribbons, tags etc. There are markings on it for that reason, but as yet, I have not been able to figure it out without lots more effort than getting down to where the work is at my eye level.The depth gauge demarcates the distances from the edge of the paper to which we’re going to drill up to 15,25 cm. New products are launched in the USA before they come to the UK so perhaps they have another tool that will work for you. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. But mine (CAD, the Big Bite lives on the floor) is one of the tools I keep on my desk because then I can always find it when I'm looking for it, and that's more often than you might expect.

I realised yesterday when using my CAD through one layer of regular card that I was actually squeezing t from quite near the mechanism end of it, rather than holding it at the end of the handles (sorry, hard to describe in words!If you purchase this product, I'd suggest practicing on scrap paper first until you get the hang of it. After reading the discussion I found myself skipping the eyelet and just making a hole using my old ProvoCraft Silent Setter. The only problem is getting the holes far enough down that the box will close over the tops of your ribbon rolls. The lightweight tool comes with 340 gromlets in a variety of shapes and colours, plus a total of 12 designer gromlets in Frenzy and Party designs. Sorry for sounding confused, its a bit of an issue that things are refered to by different names by different countries.

Rotating setting blocks and action Setter help you do what you want to do without fumbling around for loose pieces. I do have the Big Bite but think it was a waste of money, I've maybe used it once - I do used the hand-held model for the above mentioned uses.A popular theme on the scrapbooking market is manufacturers always trying to come up with great new eyelet setting tools.
