  • Can this magnetic platform be used with the Cuttlebug?   By: suebeebunny (19-May-14) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • The platform is about 1/4 inch too wide, and won't go through the Cuttlebug. By: Emily.Anderson (19-May-14) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    • I've used this on my Cuttlebug but only with the thin spellbinders and with the dies that are small enough to fit in the Cuttlebug. Some of the spellbinder dies are too large to put on the platform. I use my Sizzix HotShot for those bigger dies. Check out the internet to see which die machines the Sizzix brand recommends to use with it's products. I would not use any of the thin dies on the green Cuttlebug machine. The Anna Griffin Cuttlebug is much better made in my opinion. I hope this helps! By: rosesylace (29-Sep-15) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported.

    • I just got my magnetic extended platform. I have some longer boarder dies and there was only a $10 difference between the sizes and I only want to buy this once, I opted for the extended one.

  • Is the magnetic platform better to have than the precision base plate? Why would I need both? Are they used together or separate? Thanks   By: whimsicalwhinery (07-Jan-16) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • I am not familiar with the precision base plate. I have the multi-purpose platform base and the magnetic platform base. I use the multi-purpose platform for thicker dies and for embossing folders. I use the magnetic platform for thinner dies and I love it. If I have very thin dies, I use a cardboard shim underneath the magnetic platform. This probably doesn't answer your questions, but I wanted to give you my insight.

  • I am new to Sizzix and was trying to get a little more thickness to cut a die I was having trouble cutting (Tim Holtz Festive Greenery) so I made the mistake of using the die on the magnetic platform which seemed a little thicker then just the extended platform. I pushed it through and it peeled off the top paper off of the magnets. Have i ruined it or can I stick something on the magnets and still use it? Help, help anyone?   By: Afountain (28-Nov-15) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • Do the magnets still work I think the paper is for information mostly i think and should actually be on the bottom side the magnet side should be face up. I would try again and see if it works still. I sometimes have used an extra sheet of paper or cardboard to add extra depth for a good cut if i didn't have a shim.

  • Using my magnetic platform with 2 cutting pads and a triplts die and paper, my cut design is coming out fine but my cutting pad now has fairly deep cuts in it from the dies. I don't have a 3rd cutting pad so what can I do? The instructions say that I may have to do up to 3 passes for it to cut, but mine is actually cutting too much because they are cutting into the plastic cutting pads.   By: herunsineedto (04-Sep-15) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

    • I keep a number of cardboard shims (actually the backing from some embossing folders) on hand and have found that I can use them in place of the top plate when this happens. This way you can add just enough to cut. By: marilynmac (07-Sep-15) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

  • Can the magnetic platform be used when embossing a die cut after it's been cut? Or do you have to use traditional sandwich plates for the embossing? Thanks!   By: NYorker (04-Aug-14) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • Yes you can use it for doing the embossing of a die cut. The only thing you can not do is the embossing folders because they are to thick to go through. By: bjcapen (06-Aug-14) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!
