I learned that 1. you can also use a snap press to attach metal snaps and grommets with the appropriate dies (and oh my gosh, that makes me want it more!)... and 2. You can convert the press into a foot press (which is so cool!). And there are so many other things I learned too, but those were both really cool things!

I learned several new things from reading the FAQ page.

1. Some metal snaps use a post, instead of a second cap.

2. You have to have a different die set for metal and plastic snaps. I haven't really been interested in metal snaps, but that could change.

I learned firstly that if I am unsure what size snaps I need that I am able to buy sample packs, taking out all the guesswork and possible disappointment.

Secondly, There's no need to buy separate studs and sockets for sizes 14 and 16 caps, as they're the same size for both.
