Description & Details

Note: This Vagabond 2 Machine is only compatible with power requirements that are the same as those found in the United States and Canada. Consumers who purchase this machine and use a different power source in any other part of the world will void the manufacturer's warranty. 

Contents:

  • One Vagabond 2 machine
  • Pair of Standard Cutting Pads
  • Extended Platform
  • Extended Thin Die Adapter
  • One power cord

Size:

  • 12 1/2” x 4 5/8” x 9” (machine closed)
  • 15 1/4” x 12 1/5” x 10 1/4” (handle up and doors open)

Let the Vagabond 2 take you on a creative journey! You won’t miss using a crank with this awesome machine that resembles a vintage suitcase that’s traveled the world. The Vagabond 2 operates just like its predecessor, the Vagabond, but now delivers solid steel gears and rollers, unibody cast roller housing, an ABS plastic exterior, a high torque motor and auto shut-off, giving you built-in overload protection.

If you’re doing a lot of die cutting, you’re going to love that this machine is electronic, as opposed to a handle (manual) crank. Simply push the button and you’re ready to go! You’ll love that it’s portable and is perfect for your on-the-go crafting.

The Vagabond 2 works with everything from Sizzix’s smallest dies up to the 6” wide plastic backed treasures and embossing tools. This machine is not compatible with Sizzix’s Bigz Plus and Bigz Pro dies. Use the Extended Wafer-thin Die Adapter to work with Framelits and other brand dies and embossing tools.

How to use:

Before sending your dies and material through the machine, ensure that the Platform, Cutting Pads and die (often known as the “sandwich”) is aligned properly. To align the “sandwich” press the Guide Flaps inward until they both make contact with the sandwich with enough force to move them into alignment before entering the rollers. Once the sandwich is aligned, you may proceed to slide it into the roller opening and depress the motor on/off button.

The Platform is designed to be used when you are cutting or embossing thin materials such as a sheet of paper or cardstock. The Thin Die Adapter allows you to use your Framelits, Thinlits, Triplits and other brands of thin dies in your machine.

Warranty:

One year limited warranty. The Vagabond 2 machine is only compatible with power requirements that are the same as those found in the United States and Canada. Consumers who purchase this machine and use a different power source in any other part of the world will void the manufacturer’s warranty.

Why we love the Vagabond 2:

  • Perfect for small spaces
  • Machine will shut-off if overloaded
  • Portable
  • Durable for big projects
  • Helpful for users with limited mobility
  • Fantastic for cardmaking, scrapbook layouts, home décor and DIY projects
  • Looks like an antique suitcase!

Tips:

  • Run intricate dies through the machine two to three times for a cleaner cut
  • Do not use the Thin Die Adapter for embossing

What customers are saying about the Vagabond 2:

“I waited a long time, and did a lot of research. It paid off. I love the Vagabond 2. I had a few problem dies that I dreaded using, so they were the first dies I tried when I received my machine. They came out perfectly. The machine is much quieter than I thought it would be. I'm loving die cutting again! And I'm glad I got it through Scrapbook.com. Their customer service is unparalleled. 5 stars also!” - lwedwards

“I had shoulder joint replacement surgery and could no longer turn the handle of my Big Shot. This is fun and easy on my shoulder and fast! I used it yesterday to crank out about 100 die cuts to start my Christmas cards.” - joirv605

“Tim Holtz and Sizzix has really done it! They have created the best machine for die cutting and embossing. I highly recommend this machine. I am disabled so the crank machines are a problem. This one makes life very easy for me. And it's really not that much more expensive than the nicest crank machines - so get this one. It makes making multiple cards a breeze. The only drawback is that I have a few really large dies that won't fit through this die cutter. But for the majority of dies out there, this is die cutting heaven!” - SnowflakeWarrior

“I haven't had this long, but the few times I've used it, it works like dream! Relatively quiet, easy to use, cuts on the first run thru. I thought I wouldn't like that the button has to be held down, but after using it, it doesn't bother me. My BigKick magnetic platform works wonderfully with it. I've tried my thick Sizzix red steel dies and thin dies from other companies.” - stampkathy

    Loving My Vagabond

    I started out making cards by basic cutting out shapes with an exact-o knife. I then upgrades to a Sizzix BigKicks and now I have the Vagabond 2 and wish I had started out here. I love not having to crank the machine, the cuts come out nice and smooth. I can cut multiple pages at a time and the possibilities are endless. I love this machine and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great product/machine.

    Best die cutting machine

    Tim Holtz and Sizzix has really done it! They have created the best machine for die cutting and embossing. I highly recommend this machine. I am disabled so the crank machines are a problem. This one makes life very easy for me. And it's really not that much more expensive than the nicest crank machines - so get this one. It makes making multiple cards a breeze. The only draw back is that I have a few really large die's that won't fit through this die cutter. But for the majority of dies out there, this is die cutting heaven!

    Vagabond Die Cutting Machine

    Love it! Cuts most dies very cleanly. Since it is electric, no need to use a crank which is good for my arthritic hands. The ability to cut from either side and to just touch a button to reverse the cut is a real plus.

    Tim Holtz - Vagabond 2

    I have to say this is the first time I have ever owned a die cutting/embossing machine. Though I have researched them many times over the years I never found one that really jumped out at me until this one and I have to say I chose wisely. This machine is absolutely brilliant. It's strong, easy to use and cuts through many different thicknesses of paper, felt and even cardboard. I am able to emboss or cut through many different textures with ease. I am truly thrilled with this machine it is incredible.

    Vagabond2

    This is my first experience in using the Vagabond. Friend shared how the Vagagabond 1 would freeze but Vagabond 2 doesn't because of improvements. I used it within 5 minutes of opening the box. Easy to figure out. I had the impression by the videos and the look that it was portable meaning battering operated. I wasn't dissatisfied to learn it was not. I am pleased that everything that you need comes with it and that you don't have to buy the plates and platform. After over 50 uses, within the first month of purchases, my plates are beginning to warp or curve so appreciate advice on preventing this for owners of Vagabond 2s.

    Early Christmas

    Absolutely love using the Vagabond 2. Not noisy and can use sitting or standing. My husband suggested I get one and he is my hero...never realized how much easier it would make my crafting.

    • It comes with everything you need. You will love the extended platform. I have never liked the SU cutting machine by sizzix because of the small,platform and all the additional items they recommend that you simply don't need.

    Are the original Vagabond and Vagabond II the same size?   By: User (05-May-18) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    This question is about a related product.
    • According to Tim Holtz, the Vagabond II is more quiet and less likely to jam or bread because it has all metal gears as opposed to the Vagabond I which I guess has some plastic parts which makes it work. It is impossible to cause jams because the Vagabond II will stop before anything jams and this prevents the machine from overheating and breaking. Also, the Vagabond II doesn't have the travel stickers all over it, which is no big deal because it still compacts into a cute suitcase when your not using it.

      On a personal note, I Love mine!!!! I wish I would've bought it much sooner than I did. No more struggling. If you have an health conditions that make using a manual die cutting machine than this is the machine for you!!!

      Oops, Just saw that you asked if it was the same size- not the same machine. sorry. By: Joni Seith (06-May-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!
