Well I though it was a long way in the future and hubby too said in 6 months we will consider . He had earlier asked me to narrow down to 2 machines and this time after adequate research as he was not happy with the Imagine. So I did. Since I knew it was 6 months away I thought why not go in for 24 inches and so narrowed down to Black cat cougar and knk maxx (klic - n cut) . Boy! These are the Ferrari's and Lamborghini in my book
I talked to Sandy - knk and Dawn and Sherri - cougar and what great helpful and knowledgeable and PATIENT women they all are. They answered all my questions so honestly. I made a comparison - pros and cons list and submitted to hubby.
You cannot loose in both the machines. They match. Only difference I found was knk has bolt table and also it is US based while cougar has one distributor in US and is UK based. That's about the main apart from some extra speed stops in cougar I think.OK now comes the Oh My !Oh My !Oh My part :)
Hubby has gone and ordered this for my wedding anniversary which was last week. I got a hint when my son was talking when he saw me watching E2. He said something like you are not going to watch that Mommy etc and when I asked why he said that - by his answers I knew something fishy was going on and when I confronted hubby later on he said yes. And then Sandy emailed me with congrats and I knew for sure. But that's still not the Oh My part!. The Oh My part is because guess what turned up? EAGLE ULTRAFORCE and not knk maxx.
Yep eagle is twice the force of knk. Check this site out http://scrapbookdiecutter.com/
Since they ran out of knk maxx till they get the shipment instead of dropping a customer they just upgraded free of cost! Yahoo!!! So not only did I get the extras when ordering knk maxx according to the site I got an eagle. I am thinking about the chipboards I can cut. I can put a roll of vinyl as it is. Well I should thank the boycotters lol even though I am not boycotting. I guess because of them lots of cutters have been sold out and I get an Eagle!!!
It is like while air travelling. When one is upgraded to first class. I always wanted to be upgraded and used to look green eyed at those who got upgraded. But this is so so much better!
OH WOW! I cannot wait to talk further with Sandy! She is known for awesome support! Her blog - http://www.iloveknk.com/
Ok here are the pictures.
Now have to wait for hubby and son to move this baby upstairs! It is almost 3 feet long! Now off to check out all the goodies!
