In spite of obvious graphics on the platform, this user forgot to put the bottom clear plate in place before cutting. DON'T DO THAT!!! Expensive mistake on my part. Otherwise, it is a really great accessory to have. What might have helped me is if there were an orange or red "Caution" sticker with a warning to be sure to put the bottom plate in place before cutting. I hope my experience helps someone else avoid this user error!!
I have been using a lot of thinlets, framelets and other metal dies, this is worth every penny especially when its on sale.
I just put down my dies, it snaps into place and stays.
I don't have to struggle getting the tape on right or how it comes off.
There is also an extended platform as well but so far the standard size fits my needs....and budget. :0
This is an excellent and convenient accessory for the Sizzix Big Shot to be used with the wafer thin dies and sizzlits. It simply makes the sandwich that is needed to roll through the machine so very easy that there is little to it and the dies come out perfect every time! So happy that I purchased it!
Item works exactly as advertised & with the free online video classes my card stamping creativity has increased.
Also, I am receiving my orders within 2 days of ordering them. It can take over a week from other online sources.
