Get ready to create your most professional die cuts yet! The Precision Base Plate for Wafer-Thin Dies by Sizzix allows for precise die cutting of chemically-etched, wafer thin dies Framelits, Thinlits and Triplets in the BIGkick, Big Shot and Vagabond machines all sold separately. Use it to cut through many different materials such as burlap, craft plastic, craft metal, fabric, aluminum, canvas, lightweight suede and thin cork. This base plate protects dies from warping while improving their performance. The metal side is meant to come in contact with the dies while the plastic side should not be used for cutting but contains helpful diagrams and instructions. The package contains one Precision Base Plate that measures approximately 10" x 6 1/4 x 1/8th" and lasts for thousands of cuts.
I absolutely love this. I have several alphabet Sizzix Sizzlits that I have not used because they never cut compl;etely. With this plate I can use them again. No matter how intricate the die, it cuts beautifully when using this plate. And it works wonderfully when cutting hard-to-cut papers like Shimmer Sheets. I would say anyone who does a lot of die-cutting sholuld have this product.
The new generation of wafer-thin dies are getting more detailed (think Tim Holtz). The Precision Base Plate gives you an added advantage. It's like cutting with scissors since you have metal cutting against metal. You get a nice clean cut. An added bonus, your clear plates will last twice as long. Worth the wait; worth the money.
This is just wonderful, now my dies are not getting worpped. I have a Big Shot Plus machine and unfortunately Suzzix does not make a precision Base plate to fit the machine. I don't understand why they are still selling the machines for people to get ripped off, because you can't get the supplies that go with the machine. I have called Suzzix company many a times, and I do not get anywhere. Its hard getting the cutting boards for the Big Shot Plus, but it will puzzels me why they can produce a machine like this with no supplies. That's like buying a car with no engine in it or an engine that will last for 3 months and can't get repairs or supplies. I think that stamping places like you to keep buy dies all the time and they are expensive.
I am sorry that I got the Big Shot Plus Machine, but I can't afford another just to get supplies easier. I guess that is America, getting ripped off.
The Precision Base Plate has made my die cutting so much cleaner and quicker. It works first time, every time without having to run the die through my machine twice.
The more intricate the die the better the plate works.
An excellent product.
