Silent eyelet setter
Member Name: Gemm85
Advantages: Punches two sizes of hole, very strong
Disadvantages: A tad on the heavy side
The Crop a Dile is such a useful craft tool for setting eyelets onto your cards and scrapbook projects. No more banging around with noisy eyelet setters, this is as quiet as a mouse!
It comes with full instructions which are quite easy to understand and I got used to using it in no time. There are two sizes of holes it will punch, 1/8 of an inch and 3/16 of an inch.
The most amazing thing about this is that it will punch through the thickest of card, chipboard and other materials like butter. I put an extra hole in a leather belt with no trouble whatsoever using this tool! The instruction leaflet that comes with it also tells you that it will punch through tin buckets but I haven't tried that one yet!
My only gripe is that it's a bit heavy and if you are doing a lot of eyelets on something your wrist may suffer!
I bought this from the QVC website for just over £20 including postage which I think is a great deal, I did quite a lot of shopping around at the time and this was the best price I found even after adding postage! This price included a carry case and a selection of 400 eyelets in a range of colours to get you started.
I wouldn't be without mine now when it comes to adding eyelets!
Summary: Great tool for setting eyelets without making noise!
