Okay..I'm an admitted Tool Junkie....and for distressing I have a Handheld Scraper & some Precision Files.... but this Tool is the Bomb!!! It came with a small piece of cardboard, so of course I distressed that immediately, then 1 piece of cardstock, then 2 at a time. But I wanted to see how many pieces of textured cardstock it could distress at one time, so I cut 10 small scraps of textured cardstock, and it did a FANTASTIC JOB ON ALL FOUR SIDES IN LESS THAN 1 MINUTE!!!! Can you imagine how long it would take to distress 10 or 20 or 50 small pieces of paper by hand?
As for those who say it's a little loud to operate, it sounds like a hand mixer on high---doesn't bother me a bit.
It's lightweight enough to hold in one hand and distress paper with the other, but it also has four sturdy rubber feet which makes it easy to place on a flat surface and it won't slide around. (I even tried it on an "interior" edge of cardstock).
Last, (but certainly one of my favorite features)...it has a handy Dust Compartment on the bottom, so you won't have "Paper Dust" EVERYWHERE!!
Make distressing EASY on your fingers & nails....buy the cute & powerful Zutter Distrezz-it-All...it's worth the price!!!!!!!!
The power cord is plenty long (4ft.- 4"), but wouldn't it be cool if some day, they came out with a Battery-operated version?
