Never heard of that one...

The KNK Zing can cut chipboard, emboss paper and light cardstock,
do engraving, etc


knkusa.com/shop/knk-zing/
It's below the info about the KNK Maxx Air.

If you want to see more go to www.iloveknk.com

I probably should admit that it replaces an older yellow KNK cutter...
and that I also have an old blue wishblade, and a Cricut E.
My niece loves the E, so I see it finding a new home.....let her buy cartridges for it. lol

Cricut Expression 2 and I love it. So simple to use. I am getting rid of an old KNK, because it was way too much machine for my needs.

Gazelle by Bosskut. Love it!

It's similar to the Cameo, but it has a little more pressure than the Cameo. It cuts 12 inch wide cardstock (and lightweight chipboard). I can design and make pretty much anything I want.

However, I also bought a Cricut Expression and a bunch of cartridges for convenience and because I liked some of the designs. I like it, but it's not nearly as good a machine as the Gazelle.

Are you talking about a manual die cutter? If so, I'd highly recommend the Sizzix Big Shot. I have the Cuttlebug & but recently used a Big Shot & it's sooo much nicer. Had to go purchase one after using it. It's sturdier than the Cuttlebug.

Umm....you could do what the son of a friend did when he went to Europe. He packed his oldest underwear and threw them away instead of washing them, so he'd have more room for things on the return flight.
He also wore his bulkiest clothing and shoes on the return flight.

Same here. I spend enough time on the computer and don't want to add die cutting to it too. This is the same reason I don't click on most links posted for or sent to me, because I know I'll get sucked into those games and whatever else and spend hours more on looking at this screen.

Having said that, if and when my Expression dies, I'd love the precision of the Cameo.
