    I have seen the crop-o-dile and have thought about buying it. However, when I pick it up, it seems so heavy and large. I have small hands and am wondering for those of you who have small hands, too and who own one of these, how do you like it? Is it too cumbersome? I've had four hand surgeries and so I am sensititve to the balance and weight of hand-held items...even silverware!!! Go figure!!

    This is very easy to squeeze and you will wonder why you have been using a hammer to set those eyelets and waking everyone up! The one drawback is that you can only set an eyelet about an 1" in from the edge of your paper. However, you can always make a tag.

    It would be a good thing that I like tags, then, huh?

    I HAVE THE CROP A DILE!!!! Actually, my wife does, but it is really neat. Well worth the money especially if you get it with the 40%or 50% off coupon at michaels.

    I love mine too.. but i understand your concerns. I had that same concern, and it seems to work fine and i don't have problems with it.

    Suggestion: Buy one (with your coupon of course), and if you don't like it.. return it.

    I just got mine a few months ago and now I love to use eyelets, snaps, etc. Love it!! Got two friends hooked on it in Feb when we had a scrap weekend and they both ordered on-line from J's and got free shipping and 50% off.

    Hmmmm, thanks you for your suggestions and opinions. Buying it and taking it back if it does not work for me is soooo logical!! Didn't even think of that. I think that I will give it a try.

    I have been using the 'Silent Setter' and I have to stand up and over it to use it. It takes so much force to make it work properly. Using a setting hammer is much easier. But, the Crop-O-dile may do the trick, if it fits my grip.

    I love mine!! I really hate that you can only use it so far in on your pages and it is alittle ackward to use with smaller hands to get a good grip on it but the more you use it the easier it is.

    I bought a springlet eyelet setter that seems to work prety good so far for reaching further on the pages.
