    Yes I do like my "Tango"; never a problem, happily does everything I ask him. I like that he's flat on top so I can put his plates there in between cuts. I was lucky to buy him when he came with a matching carry bag. And he's my favourite colour!
    I originally bought the raspberry Wizard with extra plates so I could use it with some Fiskars embossing plates I already had but I gave him away when I got some bigger dies that he couldn't cope with so I bought a GC but it broke it's cogs. I am sorely tempted to send you postage but I really don't need another machine just now and I hope you can give it to someone who will love and use it.

    How daft am I!!!!! Been having a rummage around in my craft room and have found 'several' die cutting machines lol. ToDo, Grand Caliber, Ellison Design (Not sure what one as one of the labels is missing), Xyron, Old Sizzix - my first die cutter and a Wizard - so I sure don't need a new one maybe some new plates.

    I am interested in the one JM said about though. It's fairly expensive but I've found some cheaper ones that are returns. All been tested and they have a 3 month guarantee - What do you think?

    Personally, I wouldn't chuck, I'd rather pay the extra and have a 12 month g'tee. One of our members bought a pre-loved one a few years ago and had no-end of bother, Can't remember for sure who it was or which model but maybe someone else can? I've a feeling it was one of the early "Craftwells" - they've done 2 or 3 models over the years. From time to time they do have offers on (usually for whoever's birthday or anniversary !) so if you aren't desperate I'd hang on, maybe even up to November 'ish' when they start flogging dear stuff for C********. Wish you lived nearer & you could borrow mine !

    I used to have the little Sidekick, got it as a freebie from one of the magazine subscriptions. I was quite fond of it at the time as I didn't have many dies. Once I realised that I wanted larger ones, I bought my wee bug. I gave the Sidekick to Kate, along with a few dies I no longer wanted.

    I still have the first die I ever bought, the Ellison guitar. Bless it, I used it with a pasta machine when I first bought it. It worked quite well, but not quite as well as I would have liked with some card stock. It didn't do much for the pasta machine either. Not that it was bought for pasta making, but for my 1/12th scale polymer clay food and stuff of that ilk.

    Always look on the bright side, if you can't find it then polish up the dull side.

    You crack me up! I can just about understand people forgetting that they have a die or a stamp, but a machine!,

    I've got a couple lol. The standard Sizzix, the A4 Sizzix, Joy Trouvaille (? - like the HappyCut), Baby Blue and the electric TL machine.

    I don't want the JT anymore - don't want anything for it - but it would be like posting a brick (or two).

    Add on: I really want the Sizzix Express. Sizzix had it on sale the other week for 118, but I was very good (failing fast though)

    This is making me feel better - I've got the Big Shot and Baby Blue, which I use all the time. I bought an XCut, which is useful as it folds up so easier to take if I'm crafting with the kids at school. Unfortunately the biggest Sizzix dies don't fit through it so I bought the A4 Sizzix machine in a Black Friday sale, which sits in it's box until I need it. I've also got 2 Cricuts (Explore and Explore Air) and a Silhouette Portrait. They all have their different uses so it's hard to decide which ones to part with!

    lol Victoria

    They were all in a cupboard which isn't opened much. I haven't been in my craft room for quite a long time to do any crafting so I had forgotten lol- Think it must be my age!
