I bought 1 that broke within a week when I ran a Spellbinders Foxy die through it, they sent me a new one that lasted for almost a year with light use, it seems to be goofed up now though since the handle will only go back and forth and not in full rotations, I tried cutting 5 different dies. The roller cogs seem to be rather flimsy and prone to breaking, in the U.K. they actually sell replacement cogs for this machine and the exclusive version of it, the Sapphire. It would probably be a good idea to do the same in the U.S. with directions on how to replace broken cogs. When it works it's a nice little machine for cutting smaller dies. This doesn't take embossing folders, it also doesn't suction down to many surfaces, I bought a Sizzix Sidekick working platform to use with it.
