I had always seen the green crop-o-dile in the stores and catalogs. Love the funky green but didn't want to spend what I felt was big bucks on the set.
Weeks pass and I started getting ideas that involved eyelets. I started looking into the silent setters, the cheaper setters with lots of extra pieces and then adding up the cost.
Finally with a coupon I bought a pink crop-o-dile. After reading the back that the Crop-o-Dile can punch through chip board I was sold.
Taking it off the shelf brought me to reality of the weight of this wonderful tool. Don't let that throw you off.
So here I am a month later and I'm trying to tote this thing around. It's awkward and heavy and just doesn't "flow" in my tote bag. I finally found the case online AND it was on sale!
I thought what the hay. The green one looks comfy in there.
Purchased. Recieved. My Crop-o-Dile fits so snuggly in there and the 400 eyelets it came with will certainly be used for experiments.
The case snaps shuts firmly and has a little handle for carrying. But most of all it finally fits in my tote bag without argument!
Lesson learned is definately buy the case with the tool. I may have spent more than I bargained for but it's a lesson in life and I dont regret a penny.
I'm so happy I purchased this item. I love my Crop-A-Dile and I wanted to keep the instructions with it, this case makes that possible. Until I purchased the case, I kept my Crop-A-Dile and instructions in the original blister pack, which I sliced down the side to be able to get it in and out, a real pain. The case is so much easier, and a better way to store everything in one place, including eyelets. And, it is PINK!!! Great product!
I have been waiting so long for one of these. It is fabulous to be able to keep my crop-a-dile in its own case it is so convienient. I love the way I can now store it on a shelf and just reach for it when needed. I would recommend this case if you want to keep your Crop-a-dile on the shelf or in a draw. I have having all my tools mixed up so I love this.
