I just got a cropadile - came late to the eyelet bandwagon. I have found that I do need to squeeze gently, but I am finding the recommended settings don't work as well for me. When I set a 3/16 eyelet with the recommended A-1 setting, no matter how gently, it splits and smooshed the back. For grins I tried A-4 and it looked much better. I just got some 1/8 eyelets and the same thing - C-3 smooched and split, but C-2 was much better (although not perfect). Am I the only one who gets better results with non-standard setting? I need to write down what has worked for me and tape them to the handle.
Here is the link to the settings:
