LOL...this has been very interesting reading. I've come so close to buying the Grand Calibur, then I read this thread and now I'm not so sure. I want it to cut the larger sized dies, for various craft projects but I'm worried to read about handles breaking, metal flying and cuts not coming out even etc. I live in Australia...so I really don't need to be sending it back to the US for fixing if it breaks. That'd cost a bomb!
I love my cuttlebug...it has been going perfectly for years...wish it came in a larger size.
Think I'll defer my decision a little longer.
Thanks for the feedback ladies. Both the good and the bad!
