Default Is there a new eyelet tool setter by Fiskars?

I went to a SU party yesterday and she had this wonderful eyelet setter by Fiskars. It was so easy to do eyelets, no hammer, no pounding ... it was great! Now I want one but have no idea where to find one. I didn't see it in the SU catalog but she said SU sells them. Does anyone know where I can get one and how much they cost? I just loved it!

to my knowledge, no.

What I believe she was showing you, was how to use the 1/16" hole punch to set 1/8" round eyelets.

Yes, it does work, but not on all colors--particularly the gold/BRASS ones. Brass is too hard to use the 1/16 hole punch setter technique.

Also, be aware that you can mar the paint finish on the eyelets, if you don't make a little eyelet "protector" out of scrap card stock when you set them this way.

I would also recommend testing and keeping a chart of which colors this works on as it works better on some colors than others . . . I also found I gotten frequently "uneven"/warped settings when I used this method and I prefer the actual eyelet setter itself to avoid disappointing results?

This is, of course JMHO, and my own personal experiences with this technique.
