Does anybody know where I can find an eyelet punching tool so I can add it to my wishlist? I can't find one....

"punching" or "setting"?

I have the Making Memories Anywhere hole punch and universal setting tools. I'm not sure if they are sold separately now, but they are in the MM tool set.

Love the crop-a-dile big bite. It both punches the hole & sets the eyelets.

Punching. I've been using a hammer, but it's not working out too well

Punching with a hammer? I'm sure this is just a matter of semantics. Sorry, but now I'm really confused.

The hole punch tool I have, you use WITH a hammer.

I have to agree the Big Bite is the best thing since sliced bread And quite too so you don't have to wake everyone up with the hammer (i used to have a problem with that)

What I meant was that after I got the eyelet through and turn it over, I would have to use a regular hammer to punch the back of it down.

I've used/owned many different eyelet punching/setting systems in the two plus years I've been scrapping, and I have to say the Crop-A-Dile is the clear winner. I loved the BigBite so much that I bought the original to take to crops. And that led me to other WRMK tools - such as the Corner Chomper and the Art Knife - which I absolutely love.

Okay.

There are actually 2 steps to using an eyelet.
1. punching a hole in the paper/project
2. setting the eyelet (squishing it down)

As I said above, I use the Making Memories universal eyelet setter tool.
There are lots of eyelet tools out there now. Check out the resource tab at the top--there are articles (and maybe videos) about eyelets that show some different tools.

I have heard of people using a large phillips screwdriver to set an eyelet (insert the tip in to the back of your eyelet, and hit with a hammer).
