  • 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.

  • Does the Sizzix magnetic platform work with the Big Shot Express machine? Thank you.   By: pam.tschida (21-Oct-18) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • Yes it sure does and it is very helpful in holding down those thinlet dies so that they don't move during cutting. You could also tape the dies down with blue painters tape, but the magnetic platform is nice to have, because it allows you to be more precise when you cut and help you use all the paper pieces.
      I like it. By: Trixiebelle (24-Oct-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

  • I recently bought several wafer thin dies and have planned to purchase the magnetic field when on sale. Unfortunately before purchasing it, I had to have an emergency implant of a pacemaker. I just noticed that there is a warning that the magnetic field can be harmful to pacemaker wearers. Are there any steps that can be taken to prevent problems or are there alternative ways to get the same results without using the magnetic fields?   By: joaniebacz (24-Oct-17) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

    • Using the plain platform (non-magnetic) that came with the machine, just tape down the dies and paper so they don't move. I place tape at top and bottom of the die making sure they don't move if I run the sandwich back and forth. By: heynsl (20-Mar-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

  • I receiveded one of those little purse shaped sizzx die cutters and I am really having a hard time figuring out how to use and what dies, will fit into it. I have brought 5 differant dies and 1 works for sure, 2 need one of those magnetic things ( I think), the rest are to big. I'm soooo confused. SOMEONE PLEASE ADVISE. Even the clerks in the store seem to guess what's right. The machine Did Not come with anything but instructions to put it together.   By: Claudia Broz (24-Feb-17) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

    • If you have the same cute little purse sizzix that I had it is called a "texture boutique" and can only emboss. I had one for a while and opted to get the cuttlbug so that I could cut dies as well as emboss. Your little purse will use all the cute card size embossing folders but that's it. Hope this helps.

  • 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!
