This machine is AMAZING!! Loving the fact that it has so much more space than my old die cut machine. Also loving that I can now purchase larger dies to die cut!! You can cut several layers which is a plus! & You can also cut so many different types of material!! I am very happy with my purchase!!
Love my new toy! I have the Grand Calibur and Cuttlebug... this one cuts better than either. I have cut Sue Wilson dies consistentl on the first pass... in the GC it took at least two to get a clean cut! I figured out how to emboss the large embossing folders... a piece of standard cardboard is the perfect width. I do hope they come out with a mat that I can use instead of cardboard :) . My only other issue with this machine is that the cutting plates bow when you use non-spellbinders dies. I also hope they come out with a cutting plate that is made out of the same material as the GC... that thing never bowed! All in all, I am really loving this machine!
I was not happy with this machine,but I thought it would be quite different from the others. I find it to be the same as the dizzies, cuttlebug and others. There is nothing wrong and it operates fine, but to me it was basically the same as the others. I expected it to be quite different and that it would have a WOW factor, but it did not. If you want a new machine that does the same OK..plus it is VERY VERY HEAVY. Returned the one I bought because I just did not meet my expectations.
Received my Spellbinders Platinum late last week (02/24/16) and could hardly wait for the weekend to give this bad boy a go around! Even my sweet hubby wanted to watch while I gleefully ran my first die through it.
WOW!!!! This is going to be so much fun!!!! It is hard to really review it though since this is my very first die cut machine. I would imagine one with a motor would be a little easier on the hands...but I'm still very pleased with it. Hope it lasts for a long time. Thank you Spellbinders!!!!
Love, love, love it...now...on to buying more dies....
