With the ubiquity of electric motors and cheap power from your local utility, you would be foolish not to avail yourself of any labor saving tool. The fact that machines are used in your process does not detract from the value of those eloquent objects you produce, and such tools help you make more consistent objects at a more affordable price. That in turn makes them more marketable. With the coming of AC power at the end of the last century, and the widespread electrification of America at the beginning of this one, everything from sewing machines to toasters were fair game for automation -- the vibrator (you know the kind) beat out the iron by a decade! Why not crafts?
Soon you will be embedding coded microchips in your craft widgets containing a universal product code and care instructions, among other things. Don't worry, these chips will become pervasive within the next couple of years &SHY; even that head of lettuce you buy at the corner grocery store will have one. There is nothing inconsistent with trying to take the handwork out of your craft in order to maximize your creative or productive time. Don't be a craft dinosaur; use the technology.
