I had never heard of the crop a dile until when night I was applying my eyelets the old way-way hammer and setter. I was growing really frustrated. I have a baby and I don't live in a big home. I do all my scrapbooking at night, and I couldn't use my hammer and setter and night with a sleeping baby. I would always take my supplies out side to do it. My neighbors probably thought I was Coo-Coo. Anyway, I told my friend my dilemna and she proudly told me about the crop-a-dile. I ran out and got it the next day, and I have been a major fan ever since. It is so quick and quiet. I love it.
