    I finally purchased the crop-o-dial! Robert's has it on sale for $14.99...in pink. So, I figured that I would try it out. I have been concerned that with my small hands it would be too big to use. Well, it is at the very limit of my grip and tentative at that. But, I can close it and that is all that matters. Yet, I can only close it three or four times before my hand hurts (I've had two surgeries on both hands and wrists). So, I think that I will keep it but will have to allow a bit of 'rest time' while using it.

    Now I can get to making my coffee filter album for my special SAS friend in the Coffee Filter swap that is coming due!

    Congrats on your new toy! I, too, have had 2 wrist surgeries, but I find this so easy to squeeze. It looks intimidating at first, but it really is easy to use once you get used to the "equations" on the dials. Have fun! Sue

    My hands hurt a lot, but the cropodile is actually the least painful of any I've tried.

    Hi, my friend, Lynn!

    I know that all those who have this tool love it and I suspect that I will, too. I am going to have to squeeze the handles up close to the head of the tool, though. If I can consistently do that it should be OK. I am on my way into my scrap room to try it out on those dang coffee filters. They certainly don't punch through with regular grip-punches.

    Are you going to embark on another scrapbook for your Doctor friend? You did such a nice job on the last one!

    hmm I wonder if you can some how stick it on something to hold it up right and then stick what you need to and push down on it instead of gripping the whole thing with your hand?

    Glad it works for you though.

    If this is not going to work for me, I will just use it for a hammer or put it next to the bed for a weapon, if needed!

    Judy you are so funny. This not my most favorite tool I do use it once in awhile. Good luck and hope you like better then me. I seem to be in the minority on this tool.

    I just got through using it to punch the hole in the coffee filters. It is slow going. I also found that the centers to the holes have to be pushed out of the crop-o-dial with a sharp point of something. I used scissors. They do not want to fall out on their own.

    I hope that I can get the hang of this thing. The instructions are a bit baffling...I am not good with interpreting written instructions while trying to figure out the actual tool parts. Dumb, huh?! I will probably take it to my local scrapbooking store and have them just show me what to do with it! Visual instructions are much easier to follow!

    yes that would be a good idea. I figured it out after a while. They need to do something to make the markings on the tool a bit bigger or more noticable.
