I have been seriously needing a regular sized hole punch (read: 1/4 inch) which would punch more than one or two pieces of thin paper, and this does just that while also having the advantage of being able to see where you are punching for precision in hole-placement (open the trash piece). It's wonderful, and I am so happy to finally be able to find this!! I have a Crop-A-Dile which is great for hole punching, of course, but the largest hole it punches is only 3/8" which seems so much smaller, and my binder rings do not slide very easily with that small of a hole. Voila, the Power Punch has come to my rescue! Darling, where have you been all my life? Love this! One of the absolute best investments I've made since purchasing the first Crop-A-Dile!! A must get!
This is another great tool from a great company in the crafting world. If you love all things We R Memory Keepers, then you will love this new hand tool. How do you improve the original and big bite Crop-A-Dile's? With this gadget they have done it again. I purchased both sizes and you should too. It's constructed very very good -- not too heavy but just right. If squeezing isn't your thing, then you may not like it. But if you want a smaller hand print tool to punch holes thru the basic materials like chipboard etc. then this is the answer. Smaller size means take it with you and still get the job done when you're on the go! Take the plunge and try it. I'm sure WRMK will add more sizes to this product line soon.
This is truly a power punch. I just had to try it out on a variety of materials. It effortlessly cut through the thick chipboard packaging it came in, out-of-date credit cards, and metal tooling foil, all with little effort on my part. That is important to me as I have a painful condition in my hands for which I will soon begin treatment. This punch is absolutely worth its purchase price.
I purchased this tool when it was on sale. I'm so glad I did! It punches like butter (not as messy as butter ;) It has a different hole size than the crop a dile. The settings are easy to use and I love the locking feature. Bye, bye older hole punches!
