Okay guys, I need help.

I have an Epic 6 die cut system, but I want these wing dies....it SAYS that it is for the Sizzix and all that, but CAN I use it in the Epic? It says it has to have pads??!! Egads, I do not know enough about these suckers!

What are the rules with these?

these are the cutting pads they're talking about.

you use them to make a sandiwch of pad, die, paper, pad before running it through a machine. It looks like (from my quick google search) that epic 6 calls them cutting/embossing mats. Sounds like you have what you need to buy and use that die.

Manda, I think this die is just like the rest of the Tim dies, and if it is, all you need to make it work in the Epic Six is a pair of Cuttlebug B plates or pads. They come in a two pack, and I think they are about $8 at Michaels.

To cut Sizzix, you are supposed to use 2 of the hard plastic (plexiglass) mats with the Sizzix die and cardstock between them.

But alas, they sold it with one of those cutting mats only. I have heard that the Sizzix mats work too - but that doesn't help you right now.

I use the Sizzix mats in my Epic6 and they work great!

Good tip - wasn't sure if they were the same thickness or not since I don't have any.
