Default Anyone have the electric Sizzix Big Shot?

Does anyone own the Sizzix Big Shot Express? The Sizzix website says it does everything the Big Shot does, but it's electric--so no more hand cranking. I found it on sale for an AWESOME price, and I'm thinking about picking it up, but I'd love to hear from someone who owns it first. I'd mainly be getting it to cut through felt, so I want to make sure it can do that like the regular Big Shot can.

Thanks for any input and help!

Stacie

It's the same thing as the regular Big Shot, except you just plug it in. I have the Big Shot, and honestly, I wouldn't bother getting the express unless you are planning on cutting tons of dies out in a row. Unless of course, the express sale price is comparable to the sale price of the regular one!

Most of the machines cut felt - but then again, the machines don't actually cut anything, it's the dies. The originals and bigz dies are the ones you want to look out for, these work the best.

I've got the electric Sizzix Big Shot. I don't have anything else to compare it to but I love it. I got the electric one mainly because I've got nerve damage in my right arm from the mastectomy I had and have a lot of constant pain. I also have moderate lymphedema in that arm...so the more I use it, the more it swells...the more it swells, the more it hurts. So I bought the electric one to save myself some pain. It works great for cutting felt, though. So far I've only cut the craft felt...can't find a reasonably priced wool felt source.

Perfect! Thank you both so much for the information.

aandja79, the electric one I found is the same price as the regular one at discounted prices. Pretty amazing deal, really! So, I think I'm going to snap it up.

And thanks for the tips on which dies to buy! I'll look for those two types.

Really appreciate the help!

Not at all! It was at ohmycrafts.com. But I just went to buy it and see that it is now out of stock. Phooey!
