A Review for you...

I LOVE it for the amazingly strong hole punches, the silence, the convenience and the versatility...
Yes it took some getting used to and was a little awkward at first, but it was TOTALLY worth it JUST for the quiet hole punches and for the gromment setting!
Looks like I have a new AWESOME hole punch - grommet setter! But I will be keeping this tool away from my soft eyelets!

Still worth it though - I give it an 8 out of 10.

Look HERE for a review video, and HERE to see the crop-a-dile original compared to the sequel :o)

Wow that does make a HUGE difference! I have the Crop-a-Dile which I love but need something that has a further reach. Looks like I found my answer :)
Thanks for the reveiw AND pictures!

There is a difference in eyelets, different companies use different metals. I have several different eyelet setters because of this.

Thanks for the review.

Makes me want to get one! I rarely use eyelets because I find it difficult and tedious. Maybe not with this tool, though. Something else to add to my wish list. BTW, your pages are beautiful!

And just a note, I can’t get some of the pages to load from the Mr. Linky list of party-ers. Which one is your sister? I want to be sure to visit her.

That looks like a pretty neat tool. I still have the “old fashioned” set with the little hammer, etc. Sometimes fancy tools like that and I don’t get along! HA!

I have looking at this crop a dile big bite for a long time and haven’t wanted to spend the money on it yet beause I wasn’t sure how well it worked for a variety of projects.

I could have sworn I left a message on this before but its not here so it probably didn’t go through.

Anyhow, I certainly can see the different uses for this tool, however I have been debating on which tool to purchase the crop a dile big bite or the original crop a dile. So I am glad for your reviews, now I can make a better decision.

I have always hesitated to use eyelets because they seemed more work than I wanted to put up with (can you say lazy??)… but after your review, I am changing my mind. I just might have to get one!
