If you read least week's blog you will know I thought I had killed my Wizard. Now I cannot live without die cutting as I have a goodly few die cutting shapes in my tiny!!!!!!!! stash and embossing folders, so I got a Bigshot.
Some people buy pairs of shoes but as my feet are unable to wear those beauteous creations I would like to wear I indulge myself in other directions.
I have to say I do like the Bigshot (it didn't exist when I got my Wizard) so I'm happy.
This morning my lovely DH who is my resident consultant engineer applied himself to pondering my personal die cutting crisis and said I really only needed a shim as it was just worn bearings. I tried shims and they didn't work I sighed. Paper would be no good because it just gives-why not try foil was his answer. Now I saw his point but foil didn't appeal to me and I realised that acetate would be a better bet as it was hard wearing and came in different thicknesses (and I had different thicknesses).
Labelled and in my drawer with my other cutting platforms. It is a huge help on the Bigshot too with the lovely detailed dies that I had just purchased.
I will be keeping my Wizard for embossing so I can spread out the wear and tear.
Back later to tell you more news and some piccies.
