O - M - G!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got all emotional when I punched my fist hole. I never knew punching a hole could bring such completeness and a perfect state of happiness! It brings a tear to me eye with mere memory of it.

Has anyone tried punching through metal with it? I have some cookie sheet advent calendars which I want two holes in to hang up. DH says it will need drilling because the Crop-a-dile won't do it, and I would damage it trying. He's never touched that thing, he doesn't know its awesome capabilities! But I don't want to break it.

I just wondered whether anyone has ever tried?

Rosey,

I have hear rumors that it is possible and it will punch just fine. However, I have never been able to get the darn thing over the lip of my old cookie sheets to find out. Also, I would think that you would get shody results if it is a double layer cookie sheet......

I've never tried metal but I've tried other things like CDs. It can go through the thickest chipboard (provided you can push the chipboard into the tool! ha!). It works great with all plastics!

Oh yea, it's fun punching holes in things, just to see what it will punch through!!

It took Vivi to do what the rest of us were too afraid to try! At least now we know it works!

Sharon is right, when I tried mine, the lip on the side was too big.

I'll have to get DH to drill it for me.

They used to have a tool that you placed anywhere on the material to be punched and hammered the top of it to punch the punch part through. I think I have one of those somewhere. It looked like a modified metal pencil.

I have the Cropadile Big Bite. It is much better, in my opinion, because it lets you punch a whole smack in the middle of a 12 x 12 page. Really awesome. It punches holes and it lets you set eyelets without having to use a hammer and you won't have to make so much noise.
