Got one? Got any/heard any pros or cons? I've got a few dies (4x4) that I can't use because I don't have one. That puts a crimp in my style and provides me with a useless item that I can't use. (Don't ask why I got these when I don't have a Revolution. It involves Ambien.) I can get a machine off evilbay, but I just wondered if there were any opinions here.

I have the Squeeze (works on 2x2). I also have a Cuttlebug. Would that work on Revolution dies? If so, what sandwich??

Use your Cuttlebug.

Use this sandwich:
A bottom
C
Die
Paper (face down)
B

and cut.

Oh, Ambien, how I love you. You help me sleep and make morning discoveries so interesting.

I think my next album will be: "Scrapping With Ambien." I'll have to install a monitoring camera or stop motion photography system, so I scrap exciting photos of me as I'm involved in random Ambien adventures such as packing my suitcases with lunchmeat and hiding valuables in the freezer...

The old Revolution works great. Bonus if you can get a decently priced 12" platform also to use the big border dies. The Revolution was a really nice machine; magnetic platform and just heavy enough to be sturdy. It's been replaced with the Epic and I would not recommend that machine. It does have some perks (don't have to buy a separate 12" platform, accepts the newer, wider dies)but I personally do not like it. It feels flimsy and the platform isn't magnetic so the dies can slide around, which is a problem if you cut small pieces of paper to fit the die.

I really like my revolution!! It is nice and sturdy! The magnetic surface is a great feature! It would be a good buy of ev*lbay.

I love my Revolution with the large platform. I think that the Epic was a total failure for QK.

I use my electric Big Shot with the 12or 14" platform. Since I have that machine I have found that I use my dies so much more. I just love it.

I was told my Sizzix that they have replace the electric Big Shot with the Tim Holtz electric Vagabon.
I have heard great things about the Vagabon.

Another Revolution lover here. No drawbacks that I can find.

If anyone is looking for a 12" platform w/cutting pad, let me know. My machine bit the dust and I am not replacing it. So I have a Revolution case and platform that I would like to sell.

I'm a Revolution junkie. I have a Big Shot, too, but the Revolution is on my desk at all times. It takes up such little room.
I use it with most of my Spellbinders and PTI dies, too!
