any suggestions for a larger platform die cut machine?
i have a big shot but at times i need a larger platform diecutter. i'm not sure what brands are out there or the pros and cons of each. does anyone know of a good larger platform machine? i've looked at the fuse by fiskars but it's so large and heavy. i would rather not have that if possible.
any suggestions would be apprecitated
Sorry the Fuse didn't meet your needs. I did buy the Fuse earlier this year as I found my Cuttlebug limiting. The reason I bought the Fuse was for various reasons including it was cheaper than the Sizzix Big Shot Pro which I also considered, it took all manufacturers' dies & embossing folders, had the 12" platform and the Fuse folded up like my Cuttlebug for easy storage compared to the Sizzix Big Shot Pro.
I saw the Ebosser demo'ed on HSN's all day craft show yesterday. It is electric, requires no cranking, and takes larger plates. It's pretty pricey, but you get a lot with the bundle, including 8-1/2 x 11 embossing folders:
The fuse is the most portable of all the larger platform machines if you want to cut 12" or larger...the Grand Calibur and Ebosser only do up to 8.5x11. I really love my Fuse...it folds up, and yes it is heavy but if you can find a spot for it and not move it, you would be good.
