I have wanted a Sizzix for sometime now and I must say it was worth the wait. cuts like a hot knife in butter all kinds of material I was able to cut magnets with this wonderful machine. I recommend this to anyone.
After reading reviews and looking at the differences in all the die cutting machines that run on electricity, I decided on the Vagabond 2 and I have been very happy with it. Overstock had the best price by far and I am glad I purchased it here.
When using bigz dies will cut through almost anything. Very powerful motor. Has been a workhorse for 1.5 years and still going strong. Thought I had broken it several times by overloading it. But when die and tangles were backed out Vagabond 2 worked just as good as brand new! You just can’t hurt it! When doing lots of repetitive cuts it is much easier to press button and reverse and send die thru a second time for extremely thick materials rather than crank through then crank through again. I now also have big shot pro and love that as well. Both have different things they excell at so will enjoy using them both.
This is the first time I've ever purchased or used a die cutting machine. Set up was easy and the machine was not difficult to learn how to use. The instructions that come with the machine are limited, but the Silhouette website offers great tutorials and guidance. I suggest you also watch and learn from you tube videos before you begin. Happy crafting!!!
