I just got my early christmas present! I was wondering if anyone has tried using aluminium in their machine. I have the expressions2. Please let me know what settings you used. I am nervous about messing up the machine. Thank you...

I have seen others post that they have used very thin aluminum like on coke cans, but I have never tried it. Go to YouTube & type that in as a search & see what you come up with.

I have cut Christmas tree ornaments and cards/albums out of aluminum cans in my big shots with a steel cut die, but NOT in the cricut. There is a product that you can buy that is real metal that you can cut in your cricut. Here's a video. She gives blade depth and pressure and really good instructions on how to use the product.
