- Easy on weak hands or wrists !!!!! Review by KonaRose :)
Price Value Quality
I never used an eyelet or setter before, but watched a lot of videos. Ok. This was so easy! First try - boom! Eyelet in place. No noise. No muscles necessary. No coordination. ( well, you need a little ) No need to flip the thing upside down, although some people are tempted to do that :) You can just punch holes and leave them empty, put twines through, even a narrow ribbon (the 3/16" side) or brads into. Then, of course, eyelets galore can be used!
There are 3 .. 'mouths' on this tool. Both sides are simply hole punches - 1/8" and 3/16". Without any hand or wrist strength, you can punch holes into just about anything - paper, chipboard, tin, wood -- someone even put holes into a DVD on YouTube (but I think punching holes into DVDs will nullify your warranty). You can adjust how shallow or deep you want to punch the hole, up to an 7/8 of an inch (not quite a hole inch). If you want to punch all over the place, I suggest you consider the "Big Bite" crop a dile.
Then the center 'mouth.' This is used for after you have punched the correct size hole for your particular eyelet. Just put the eyelet into the hole, pretty side where you want, tube through hole. Hold card steady, lift up to eye level (you do need to see where the 'tooth' of the mouth goes) until the 'tooth' is above the 'pretty end' of the eyelet. The back will smoosh/smash/crush the back of the eyelet so let's call that the ugly side. Gently, slowly squeeze :) Eyelet in. No noise, no energy, no muscle power. This thing has so much strength - amazing.
2 heads ups: 1) don't throw away the original container as there are a few adjustments for the middle mouth you will need to use, whether for 1/8" 3/16" and other types of embellishments. 2) The other is 'hide this tool' from your husband, significant other, and other crafting friends. They will try to run off with it. - Enjoy!
