My trusty Big Shot fell apart today, all I was left with was the handle and confusion.  I had used the same sandwich as I'd used before but would it go through?! I put a bit more pressure on and the handle snapped off in my hand :( Step in trusty husband who takes it apart and finds it was not my fault after all!! the bearings had seized! so it is good it wasn't me but a shame that it was poorly manufactured, you can see where it had been slowly grinding away on itself - poor thing.

SOOOOOO I've ordered myself a Vagabond!! posts to follow
