Now there's more space to hold it in place! For perfect registration, the Sizzix Magnetic Platform uses high-grade magnets to hold Thinlits, Framelits and other wafer-thin, chemically-etched dies securely in place during cutting. This makes them instantly compatible with the BIGkick, Big Shot, Big Shot Pro and Vagabond machines. To die-cut one layer of thin material using Sizzix Framelits, Thinlits and other chemically-etched wafer-thin dies, the Magnetic Platform is required along with Cutting Pads. The diagrams on the Magnetic Platform and its tabs offer easy guidelines about how to make the perfect Sizzix sandwich. The platform size is 14.5" x 6" x .5".
I bought the Big Shot Plus and the extended magnetic platform. I wish that the platform was the width of the Big Shot Plus instead of the Big Shot. It seems sort of ridiculous not to., Please see if Sizzix makes one and if so, please start carrying it. Also my machine came with extended cutting pads which are wider than the magnetic platform, so the pads keep sliding off the platform, very annoying.
I love the extended magnetic platform for my many wafer thin dies, however, I was disappointed the extended cutting pads are not included. It is very difficult to find these cutting pads. I did find them on scrapbook.com site but you must purchase 2 pads. All other Sizzix pads come with 2 in a pack. Why make this difficult for the crafter that uses Sizzix products?
I would appreciate forthright information about the products - what accessories are needed to make my purchase complete.
