The Platinum 6 features VersaCut technology that provides strength, durability and power.

The machine can cut through a variety of materials such as paper, balsa wood, metal, cotton and more. The sides of the machine fold up and the handle can be removed making on-the-go crafting and storage a cinch.
Included in this bundle, you'll find the Tool ‘N One that features three interchangeable attachments. This is an absolute must-have tool! The brush roller will easily clean up your work area or clean your die - just roll the brush over your die or die-cut to remove loose paper. This is really convenient when using intricate, detailed, or complex dies. The piercing attachment on the Tool 'N One can be used for piercing through your die cuts for stitching, and the spatula tool is fantastic for removing the die cuts from the machine itself. When you’ve completed your project, simply store the attachments inside the brush!
Also included in this bundle are five exclusive Nested Scalloped Heart Dies that are perfect for adding sweet accents to your craft projects! These wafer thin metal dies are sold exclusively at Scrapbook.com and are just right for cutting paper, cardstock, foil, vellum and more!

How to care for your Spellbinders Platinum 6 machine:
Clean the machine and its accessories with a slightly damp cloth only. Do not use a cleaning product or chemical cleaners on the machine. Canned air may be used to remove dust and debris from small areas of the machine. If your handle requires lubrication, place a small drop of household dish detergent between the white and bronze parts of the handle and rotate the handle to distribute. Alternately, you can remove and immerse the handle into clean water with dish detergent. To prolong the life of the plates, use both sides and remove any scrap materials after cutting (the Tool 'N One is perfect for this).
● Do not use WD-40 to lubricate handle
● If the result of the die cut is an incomplete cut, add a shim (piece of paper at least as large as your die templates) between the bottom Cutting Plate and your die template to increase the pressure while die cutting.

For years I longed to own a die cut and embossing machine, but held back because of certain limitations or bad reviews from buyers. My main motivations for purchasing the Spellbinder's Platinum 6 from Scrapbook.com.
• Smooth and quiet operation. No cracking or popping noises during operation.
• Multi-media cutting and embossing capabilities it can process a wide array of materials.
• The Platinum's platforms fold up and the handle retracts to form a sleek and compact exterior design–making storage an absolute breeze.
• It was on $ale!!!
I have been fortunate enough or maybe not so much to have owned a Cuttlebug, a Big Shot, and now a Platinum 6. I first purchased the Cuttlebug and was very shortly disenchanted because I couldn't fit my steel rule dies through it. Which led me to purchasing the Big Shot because I could fit the steel rule dies and other 6" wide items through it. This was several years ago and it was my only other option at the time. But over time I became sick of this huge die cutting machine taking up precious desk space all the time. I die cut often enough that I didn't want to have to put a die cutter away and take it out over and over again. I wanted something that could sit on my work surface and not take up too much room. Because I had already invested in 2 other machines it took me a while but I finally was able to get the Platinum 6 and I am so happy that I bit the bullet and did. It's the perfect combination of form and function. Right out of the box I ran a 3D embossing folder through it and it came out clear and crisp. The handle is a strong metal and it was very easy to turn and get the thick embossing folder through. I then tested it on some super intricate dies and was very pleased. And yes it fits my steel rule dies. I wanted to be able to cut leather, cork and fabric and I like the ability to cut multiples at one time. It's a huge time saver for me. Oh and did I mention it's super cute on my desk too. Happy shopper here :)
I absolutely love this machine. I have the Grand Calibur and love it also but at times it is so much larger than I need, I also have the Sapphire and am loving it also because it is great for the tiny things, kind of like the Three
Bears, Papa, Mama and Just Right! I believe the machines to be superior because they are quieter and smoother to operate. Not as cumbersome as the Sizzix products.
The Platinum 6 Die Cutting machine is simply great because you can use it for different die cutting and embossing needs since it comes with the standard platform, clear cutting plates, an embossing plate and mat! It is also so storage friendly which is just another bonus! I can easily fold the panels to put it in my cabinet. By the way, the first thing I noticed when I used this machine, is that it is quieter than others. When you run a die cut through, you won't hear (scary!) cracking or popping noises so there's no need to fear that your cutting pad will break in two. :) So overall, great machine that I'd recommend to anyone.
I've had quite a few die cutting machines in my time and this is one of the best. It looks great, and because the platforms fold up it takes little space on the desk when not in use.
I've had the machine a few months now, but I think I'm still learning the best way to use it for different materials, and which sandwiches to use for best results. Like all things, its worth taking the time to experiment!
My one 'issue' is that it's still very stiff and hard work turning the handle when cutting some dies and cardstock. I have a shoulder problem so this is a real concern when I'm doing a lot of die-cutting and embossing. Hopefully the machine will get 'easier in time - I saw somewhere that there might be a motor attachment in the pipeline and that would be really fab for me. On the meantime if anyone has a solution, or suggestions that would help, I'd love to hear then,
