for the Grand ones you need the Grande Calibur. You can use any size spellbinders in the Grande Calibur.

They sure do and so do Cherry Lynn and all the other thin dies. but if your plates start getting warped you may have to get new plates. I have one set of plates that are so warped that they don't cut very well any more.

The Spellbinders website has a good how to page on cutting their dies in other machines.

What they don't have is a page on how to cut other brands dies in the Grand Caliber. (or I don't think they do). Which makes sense I guess.

They also include the directions for several machines, including the Big Shot/Big Kick, inside the packaging of each set of Spellbinders, which is nice, so I don't have to look it up every time I use them (I have only two sets, so I don't use them very frequently).

Actually many of the Grand Nesties do work in the Big Shot - e.g., Labels 11, Labels 4, Large Labels - as well as most of the dies in all the sets. It's only the very biggest ones that exceed 6-1/8" that won't work. Of course, I'm not saying you should buy a set of Grand Nesties if you can't use all of them, but don't rule them out completely since some of the sets will work just fine
