The machine is sturdy and having used it a few times I am pleased with the results. However I would like a more informative guide book to be included. I am using it for die cutting and having visited some blogs I see I am not the only one that was so concerned about the damage appearing on the plates as I used them. Apparently this is normal and the plates only last a certain amount of cuts, so know that you will be replacing them at some point. Have bought some more dies so will keep playing with the machine, like I said good results. Did find it difficult to hold the plates together and turn the handle without things moving, felt like I needed 3 hands. But all in all I like it and am happy I finally made the investment, although I do think they are slightly too pricey to not come with at least 1 die and 1 embossing folder.
I purchased this because it is wider and works better with all my dies that don't fit in the smaller die cut machines I have. Works very easy and the bundle it comes with makes fun projects. I would recommend this machine for all my craft friends.
