For quiet sometime I've been thinking of getting a die cutting/embossing machine, I've never used one before and so have been doing a bit of research however I have one question I thought I would ask on here as all you ladies have helped me a lot in the past...my question is...does the BIG SHOT machine fit EVERY die and embossing plat avaliable? As this is the machine I'm thinking for getting. I'm asking this as I've seen some Spellbinder dies I really like and want to be safer than sorry. :-) Thanks again ladies and as always your advice and help is truly appreciated.

No it doesn't it will not take the new Mega Spellbinders. But the Big Shot Pro Does it takes every die on the market.

I wish now I had bought it instead of getting the grand calibur and the big shot

The Big Shot is one of the most versatile die cutters on the market. It works with almost any die out there up to a 5x12 inch size. Sizzix, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, Quickutz,and many more. It's a great machine.

I would also look at the Vagabond...its an electronic die cutter from Sizzix and Tim Holtz. It does everything the Big Shot does but it is electronic so instead of turning a crank you press a button and the machine does all the work...heaven!

But the Vagabound doesn't take the mega dies either

I believe the only machine that will take ALL dies is the Big Shot Pro.
