How to care for your 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.

”For years I longed to own a die cut and embossing machine, but held back because of certain limitations or bad reviews from buyers.

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!!!” – NYScrapMOM
“I'm new to die cutting but so far I love this machine! It was quick and easy to learn and has been lots of fun not just for me but my 4 and 5 year old nieces as well, they love helping! I have other cutting machines that I can't always depend on but with the Platinum 6 I never doubt whether it will successfully make the cuts I want. No wasted materials with this machine. Also love how it folds up and stores easily!” – alliroaz
“I have had nothing but trouble the last few years with manual die cutting machines and I'd all but given up! This machine came ready to rock, it's cutting beautifully from all kinds of thicknesses including extra thick watercolor paper, and all brands of dies and texture folders work with it. No more adding shims to certain papers and having to re-cut. First time perfection, every time!! Thank you Scrapbook.com and Spellbinders for sending this my way to check out because I am not sure I would have tried it otherwise and it is everything I was looking for!” – May_Flaum
“There are several things I adore about this machine! 1) Its size. I love that I can leave it out on the top of my desk. It folds up when it's not in use and doesn't take up too much real estate. 2) Its appearance. I love the white and gold colors of this machine and its sleek design. It looks beautiful in my room! 3) Its function at cutting detailed dies. In the past I have had to use a detail cutting plating plate, or send a die through multiple times to get the detail to cut cleanly ... I was pleasantly surprised to discover just how much BETTER this machine cuts detailed dies with just the regular plates included with the machine. Plus, it's quiet! No crackling when sending my project through. I LOVE this machine and it has found a permanent home on my desk. Thank you, Spellbinders!” – Jana E

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,
