Well, I would also consider that Provocraft and Ellison made the Sizzix brand as a joint venture. There was a legal battle, and now Ellison owns the Sizzix name. So, there is bound to be some bad blood there. In addition, Ellison makes the Big Shot and Big Kick machines, which are roller machines. Are they saying that their roller machines aren't good for their dies, either? Or just Provocraft's roller machine.
Soooooo, let the buyer beware, I guess. LOL
