Default Need something to cut felt

Hey guys, I'm looking to purchase a machine that will cut small felt circles in mass quantities. Any ideas on which machine is best? Thanks!

I have the Sizzix big shot and it does amazing on felt. I have only used wool blend felts so I don't know about any of the other kinds.

I have a Big Shot and use sizzix, cuttlebug and spellbinder dies in it to cut felt. I find that wool blend felt cuts tons better than the cheap acrylic felt .

Well... a cover button die cutter, used with a machine, will easily cut mass quantities of circles in a wide variety of sizes. Just sayin'...

Not sure if you're asking me but, yes, a #16 cutter makes 3/4" circles.

LOL, thanks Dede. But those machines are a little expensive, and I need something a little more versatile. Haha. I may want to cut something more than just circles.

I have a cricut with a deep cut blade, I haven't been really sucessful with it. I have heard others claim they have had success so it may depend on which type of felt it being used too. I have often wondered the same thing. If you find out let me know. I got rid of my sixxit (sp?) for my cricut so I would hate to buy another one. lol.
