  • Fiskars Eyelet setter HELP!!!!!

    Has anyone got a Fiskars Eyelet setter? What on earth do I do with it? Am I a weakling? I can't get it to do anything at all. Even Bob thinks it is rubbish. He had a go for me and can't manage it either. Are we missing something?? This is the second Fiskars thing that I have bought and thought was no good!!!!! Can anyone offer advice please? Sue xx

      Hmmm... are you sure you have the right eyelets for it? Some of these tools are designed to work with super-light-weight decorative eyelets only, not "proper" brass ones.

      Or maybe is there a catch that you have to move aside or lift out?
      Cheers,

        No Scorchy, nothing will move on it! I have bought the eyelets especially for crafting. I just think it is useless!!! Sue xx

            Have a look on the Fiskars website to see if there are any tutorials or on utube.

            I've got a green Provocraft one (I blogged about it a while ago) which is dead easy to use and that was £10 brand new from ebay........
