OPINIONS NEEDED: What's the "best" electronic die cutting machine?
Well, guess you CAN destroy a Vagabond. :cry:

So I am back in the market for an "electronic" die cutting machine. Which machine do you feel is the best of the best? I have a bum shoulder (surgery in February 2013) so I can't be cranking a Cuttlebug now...or certainly after surgery. Well...I guess I "could" but I'd need to learn to be left-handed... :D

So please take a few minutes to give me your feedback on what machine you feel is the best and why - thanks so much!!

Not advice on which machine, but trust me- after about a week, you'll be amazed how much you can do with just your left hand! I fractured my right shoulder at the beginning of December,( I'm right handed) and had it in a splint till last week, so it was completely immobile. That, and hubby watching me like a hawk to make sure I wasn't trying to use it. I went from typing with one finger to using all of them on my left in a week( true, I had to proof-read & edit out extraneous letters) and discovered that pretty much the only things I couldn't do eventually, were put my hair up in a band( its very long) or put a bra on. Joking told a friend its possibly the first time hubby has put one ON me, :) I really am not far off ambidextrous now. Seriously, good luck with the surgery, and the physio thats sure to follow, hope it fixes things for you.

I just got the eBosser, I absolutely love it. It knows what will fit and what won't fit, so you can't break it. It is sturdy, it doesn't tip, it is left handed or right handed depending on whatway you set it. The plates are the big question for me though. I haven't really seen them for sale and do not know how much they are to replace them. But it is a really slick machine! Go to your LSS and see if they have one to demo, that's how I decided to get mine. And it embosses and cuts on the first try! Especially on those delicate dies.
