It is way bigger than I thought. I have already snapped several things to test it. Boy, oh boy will this gadget be fun.
First off, it really reminds me of the Mother Alien. No? And look how large it is compared to the Maxi-Lock thread.
I was checking to see how many layers I could go through. This is four layers of midweight cotton shirting on the left and five layers on the right. No sweat.
Then I tried corduroy. This is very stout corduroy. This is four layers. Again, no sweat. I tried it with eight and no-go. I think if I bought the extra long posts it would go through just fine. I am totally in love with these antique brass snaps (on the right).
This is all the different things I received with the press. Mostly I bought the open ring snaps but I like both. I am certainly going to buy some more of the brass, copper, and silver.
I feel a shirt in my near future. And I'm guessing it will have snaps.
