Default Crop-A-Dile Question

OK, I've been reading all the wonderful posts about the CAD, and broke down and bought one off of Ebay. I spent 19.99 on it, is that a good price? Guess that question is a little to late

Anyways, my real question. When you set the SU eyelets with a hand help punch, it kinda smooshes the eyelet - makes it flatter than it should be - well at least mine do. Anyways, does the CAD smoosh them, or are they really good set, like you would get the with hammer?

TIA

Well I've played with mine and I've noticed that I don't know my own strength. In the beginning I was smooshing them right and left and I was just using too much pressure. Just takes some practice, oh and don't expect the back to look so pretty, but it definately does the job and allows you to keep setting into the night without waking anyone.
Yes $19.99 was a good price.........oh and SU eyelets are softer than let's say MM which are steal.
Have fun playing!!!

Yes. That is a good price off of Ebay. I got mine at Michael's. It was $27.99 then I used a 40 percent off coupon. It is true. You need to figure out the right amount of pressure with each brand of eyelet. MM are a tough metal, so you have to apply more pressure. SU has soft ones, so not as much pressure needed. You'll get the hang of it. I was skeptical, but I LOVE it.

Make sure you have the top w/the magnets set right also. I was messing my eyelets up right and left and then discovered that I had it on the snap side. Now my eyelets turn out great. I have noticed that SU eyelets are much softer than any other ones out there. They do not take hardly any pressure at all. Keep practicing and you will come to love your CAD.
