I think this machine was made for younger people than I am (73). It takes some muscle to operate. Since I ordered I have learned that the WIZARD has been discontinued. :(
I never have to limit my purchases to ONE brand. If I see a large sizzix dye (up to 5.5 inches wide) or want to use ANY brand of dyecut I KNOW that I can use it with my Spellbinder!
The handle is a bit weird as it hits the machine, and you have to work the materials into the roller to "catch." But other than those two challenges, I would STILL give it a 5 stars. It's SO sturdy that I believe it will last me a lifetime.
I bought the wizard because it's compatible with all the die's.
I no longer have to take out all my sizzix, my revolution or my cuttlebug die cutting machine.
All my different die's fit the wizard, it's a great die cutting machine.
I can't wait to buy the wizard die's.
I'm so happy I bought the wizard.
I love that I can do so many different things with my Wizard - Of course it die cuts like a dream and impeccably embosses, but I also love to smash bottlecaps, do image transfers, apply rub-ons, cut through foil...and the list goes on. They have a great new website with loads of information, ideas and tutorials. You'll really love this die cut machine.
I have used several different die cut machines and non-compare to the power and ease of use of the Wizard. I love that other companys dies can be used in the Wizard! If you have not tried it .....try it now...you will fall in love.
