Snap pliers or press? Is it worth the money?

Postby Thumper » Wed Feb 08, 2012 10:23 am

Hi. So after getting more and more fed up of my snap pliers I'm thinking of investing in a press. Is there a huge difference in the finish? My pliers are always snapping the snaps and making them rubbish :(
I'm getting seriously fed up with them and risk breaking my house when I throw them across the room :evil:

Is threre anywhere good to get them in the UK?

Thanks, I know this question may have been asked a thousand times before!

I use my press on all sorts of things, duvets, coats dressing up clothes.
The press makes the poppers close perfectly. the centre bit gets squashed dead in the centre every time.

nowhere in uk had them 2 years ago when i got mine - mine is from US.
there is a yahoo coop that sells snaps and would also sell the presses - been a while since i looked - NotionSupply
