I have the smaller Crop-A-Dile and love it. When I saw the special on the Big Bite I decided that it was the perfect oportunity to give it a try! This is not something that I would have bought at full price because it is not a product that I thought I would have a lot of uses for. BUT now that I have it, I have a million and one uses for it! The brads that come with the special are AMAZING! It was worth the purchase just for that. If your on the fence - it is a great tool to have in your stash! and if you are a paper product junkie, it is a MUST have!
I was hesitant to buy the Big Bite -- I had heard it was cumbersome and not worth the money. Well, it's better than worth the money. I love being able to use all of my 12x12 paper, I love the ease of the different settings, I love it. Yes, it's huge and yes it's heavy but its a tool!! Love it.
This machine is well made and heavy duty. It does the job well. The hole punches will go through heavy card stock, leather and chipboard easily. However, when setting the eyelets, you must get used to using it since it has a tendendy to squash the eyelets if you're not careful...takes a little practice to get used to how much pressure to use.
The only other drawback I could note is the fact that it only does two sizes of eyelets. I would think that this quality machine would do every size available. That would be the only improvement I would make, other than the squash factor.
All in all, I am very happy with it and it performs as advertised.
