Here’s what our customers are saying about the Evolution Advanced Die Cutting Tool – Machine and Motor Bundle:
An Amazing Addition
“The best part of having the motor is if my wrist is acting up, I can use the motor and it only takes one finger to use, just amazing. It is easy to put on to the machine and easy to use, never thought crafting would be so much fun.” – angleguardian50
Well-made and like not having to crank it
“I have the Big Shot machine which I love, but it is large and takes over the whole table when I use it. The Evolution has a much smaller footprint. I like that you can fold it up and store it easily. The motor is great. I like to run everything through twice; forward and back, the motor makes that easy. The knob on the side that you use instead of making the sandwich, huge learning curve there. I found all of the setting guides on their website, but I use different dies from different companies. I haven't committed to memory what brand of die I'm using, so telling me to set the knob for a Thinlet die doesn't help me. I just have to try different settings or run it through twice...trial and error, just like learning sandwiching techniques. But I do like it! I use both my Big Shot and Evolution equally. My original intention was to give my Big Shot away, but for now... I will keep both.” – Paulettasmith.PS
Fantastic die cutting machine
“I really love this machine, you can use the handle or motor, it cuts very well and has storage on both sides. It also has suction when you pull down the trays. Great product.” - cwenker
I LOVE THIS DIE CUTTING MACHINE!!!! It's very sturdy, portable and very functional! Got this for Christmas last year!
I know everyone is wondering how to use the dial since there is not enough information on how to use it with certain dies/embossing folders. I did some research & found the Evolution Advance Dial Settings (pdf) on this website: http://www.weronthenet.com/Evolution_Advanced. I printed out the Evolution Advance Dial Settings pdf as a 4x6, trimmed it, and laminated it as a reference guide and stuck it in 1 of the compartments. I hope the link above helps!
Emboss, die cut AND letterpress in ONE machine with one sandwich. All you have to change is the setting on a dial! No more layers of different pads to cut depending on thickness of dies either--just adjust the dial!

I have a Silhouette, but I wanted a die cutting machine too... I love this one - it suctions onto the table when you open it up, it folds closed and takes up very little room, has built in storage on both sides, and has a wide range of settings for different thicknesses... It feels very sturdy, but isn't too heavy... The handle unlocks and comes off, and will store inside the machine so it packs/stores well... The platform that it comes with isn't magnetic - but there is a magnetic one available... That's the only down side I can think of...

I just got it and have only used it a little, but l love it. So far, everything is working great. The Evolution holds to the surface very well. The crank is easy to turn and I like that I don't have to remember what tabs, shims to use. Adjust the knob, and your on your way. GREAT MACHINE!!!!
This machine is SO much easier to use than any of the others (they shall remain nameless). I really love this machine & find myself using it much more than I did the two others that I have.
1. I know that my Evolution Advanced can cut any thin die cut. I can buy thin die cuts to my hearts content. This is a huge pro in my book.
2. It's lightweight, compact, and easy to turn the handle. I know I can purchase the motor separately should I ever need it.
3. The handle and directions can be stored in the machine.
1. I traded confusing sandwiches for confusing dial settings. The dial settings found on the WRMK website are neither intuitive nor accurate (it probably depends on the paper), so experimenting and paper-wasting are necessary.
2. I cannot use my large Sizzix steel roll dies in this, even though there is a corresponding dial setting for these dies. I tried, but the machine sounded like it was breaking. It took me 3 attempts to get a die through, and I will not be doing it again.
3. To use the smaller Sizzix steel roll dies, I had to purchase an "A" mat, which is sold with a "B" mat. So.....I now own the base, a magnetic base (it's easier to use), two B mats, 1 A mat, and a flexible mat that I am still not certain what to do with. So, I'm not sure why WRMK promotes this product with the, "No more confusing sandwiches" tag line. I have a lot of makings for sandwiches, and I'm confused.
Scrapbook.com offers a free Evolution Advanced class. This is a must, in my book. Directions that come with the EA are very simplistic. Dial settings are not included with the directions, but are downloadable with the class (directions are on the WRMK website, too, but hard to find).
I gave this product a 3-star rating because the pros are good pros.

For the first month I loved it. Now the Cutting Pad B is warped so much I can't use it and the crank falls off. With intricate dies I have to run it through 4 or 5 times. I emailed the company twice and never heard back from them. Customer service is very important to me. Other than that, it's fine.
