I have it too, love it! It came out just after I got my Slice so it was perfect for me because I kept forgetting to hold the Slice down while it cut. I love the bit 12x12 glass and if your working on a larger size paper but the tack is getting low under it the magnets help to hold it in place too.
I have it and can't imagine using my Slice without it now! It has really improved my cutting... I am realizing that in the past, any problems I have had with wonky cuts,etc.. has been 'user error' in my case. Because since I got the Hands Free unit, I haven't had any probs. And that magnet is STRONG!!! It is amazing!
I bought a hands free kit and have what is probably a stupid question. I can't get my slice to sit permanently in the square part that's supposed to go around your slice - does that make sense? And, it doesn't cut when I try to use it - it seems like the part that goes around the slice raises it enough that the blade doesn't reach the paper. I am frustrated, can anyone help? Even without the hands free kit my Slice is giving me fits lately. I can't count on it to cut correctly. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Recently I wanted to cut on some glitter paper but it wouldn't cut it properly and I resorted to using plain cardstock. Frankly, I'm embarrassed to bring my Slice to crops anymore - all my friends have a Cricut and I'm about ready to switch to some other diecut machine - but I hate to as I've already invested quite a bit in Slice discs!

I bought the handsfree kialong with the drawing tips and have a re-newed enthusiasm for my SLICE. I'm also stocking uo on blades whenever I can but I really think the key to a great cut is the heavy magnet. Now that I have a dedicated scrapbook area, away from the dining area I'm able to leave my large mat out but covered with no difficulties. I can use it more regularly.
I am so glad I got the hand free kit. I had seen it right before a CK convention came to my area. I looked at it there but got it cheaper by wathcing the Mike's ad and buying it at 40% off. I never use the original that came with my Slice. I love the Slice!!!!!
