I have no interest in actually buying one of these machines, I don't scrapbook and don't do enough cakes to make it worth my while, but I know there has been some interest in them. Just surfing, I stumbled on this chart that has any I ever heard of on it with a wealth of information. If you are weighing your options, I'd look this over. http://www.paperthreads.com/bonus/paperthreads_machine_compare_112008.html
I just saw that you are in Central MO so I wanted to say HI! I am in Jefferson City.
