I think the distresser is made by Zutter ....Does anyone know where I can find one. The store here discontinued them.

Pam, if it makes you feel at all better, it makes a big mess when I use it.

I've been curious about this thing- but have passed on it, even when I've seen it at an outlet for not much $$ at all-

but then I regret not picking it up...

I have a few different disress tools- I think my favorite 'manual' one is the Ingvild Bolme- but I usually tend to just use the side of my Exacto-

Lately, I've been remembering this manicure kit that a coworker used to have- she was obsessed with fingernails, and when the two of us used to have to work Sundays at the travel agency (with NOTHING going on) she would bring this kit up and do my nails. Obviously, I didn't need a paint job, but she'd file them with this little machine - and lately, I've been thinking, I need one of these manicure machines with all the attachments and use THAT for my 'electric distresser.' Anybody have a lead on those? I'd think they'd be easier to control than the Zutter, which looked (to me, anyways) as a 'chew it up machine.' Instead of 'just distressing.' ?

I am afraid of using an electric distresser. I may mess up the whole paper. Who knows? I may try it at one point, but not right now.

I wasn't very impressed when I saw this for the first time.

I asked our local scrapbook store owner about it. She said she wasn't going to carry it. Her view was that you could give the paper to your dog to chew on, and get the same results.


Kory - I think the designer of this tool did a video, where she said she started out with different manicure tools, and modified slightly.

I even made a fun video and used it during the filming so you can see/hear it in action:

I LOVE mine, too! I bought it on Amazon about a year ago. It's noisy, but not a big deal to me.

I've looked at those several times, but I just have to wonder how much someone is going to distress that they need an electric distresser, lol. Mind you, I do my fair share of distressing, and I have carpal tunnel, but I still can't justify buying this even in the bargain bin. Just saying

Thank you for all of your comments....I have carpal tunnel plus arthritis in my hands and fingers.
Wendy Morris a designer from several lines of paper companies had one at a retreat a year ago. She used it on a mini album and I loved it. Thanks for everyones help.
