Works well for me, I was impatient with the hand crank version I have had for years. The hand crank versions never clamp down right and walk all over when you crank. I used my Atlas for years that way and decided to get the motorized one to appease my six year old who doesn't have the patience to wait for hand cranking. With the motor its like a playdoh machine and I even got him running it. Could be easier to switch between rollers but hey, it saves time anyway. It did work on my Atlas machine as well, I got both the motor and the roller together to avoid incompatibilities but now I can use the Atlas which has interchangeable heads yay.
