How to care for the 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.

Q: Is it like the Big Shot, does it have the same dies? - User
A: It is similar to the Big Shot. Cuts all my different dies. I love it because it doesn’t take up as much space as my Big Shot Plus. – debbineely

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 :)
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!!!
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 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.
I'm a quite experienced die cutting machine user and should say that I absolutely love this one.
First of all and foremost - it does its cutting and embossing job very well (and that's why we buy such products in the first place - to die-cut and emboss).
I used it both with water thin and steel-rule dies and never had any problems die cutting them. It works beautifully with very intricate dies as well.
The instructions on the cutting platform very clear to understand and follow.
I appreciate the fact that embossing mat is included, so I don't need to hunt for it and buy separately.
And speaking of embossing - another feature that I love is that there is a separate plate for embossing.
So there is almost no guessing game of how to create a sandwich, less chances to use a wrong plate risking to break the machine.
The ability to fold it cutting surface is a big plus for me. This machine is very storage friendly. You do need to store plates separately, but I personally do store similar products for die-cutting in a bin, so it wasn't a problem for me.
And last but not least - I really love its clean, modern, Instagram worthy design and look :)
I absolutely love this machine. I've possessed Sizzix Big Kick and Big Plus machines, so I have something to compare with.
First, I like that the pressure while cutting is slightly more heavy than in Sizzix, it's quite important while you're using the delicate and intricate dies .
The Second, the great advantage is that the started set that goes with the machine has the embossing mat and the pad. For instance, Sizzix doesn't have those and you need to buy them separately.
Also I like the fact that the sides fold up and it's quite easy for your storage to keep the machine.
and I really love how it looks , pretty
Used in this project: Filigree Glimmer Wreath card- Amazing Paper Grace
I really love the Platinum 6 for cutting unconventional materials. I'm an artist and make outdoor garden art and wreaths, so they have to last the elements more than paper can. The Platinum 6 cuts through sheets of copper and soda cans, as well as thick wool felted sweaters and fabric. It's essential to my studio.
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,
I have used many die cutting machines over the years and this machine tops them all. I love the small foot print and ease of use! I use it actually more than I ever thought I would and not usually for paper crafting which is a testament to this machines versatility!
I have cut balsa wood, crafting foam, fabric, and vinyl and have loved the results. I highly recommend this machine!
I bought this machine to die cut intricate dies and emboss with stencils. It does die cut the intricate dies, better then other machine I have, but the paper remains in the die and is difficult to remove. So far I have been unable to emboss using a stencil. Used different sandwiches to no avail. My old machine has a magnetic platform and the Platinum 6 does not. Contacted Spellbinders and there is no magnetic platform available.
