    Great Product

    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.

    Your New Best Friend!

    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.

    Precision Base Plate

    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.

    Precision Base Plate - why did I take so long to buy this!

    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.

    You can run your wafer thin dies easily.....and NO mark shows up on the plate! Amazing!!!!!!! It eliminates the use of any other metal plate or shims!!!!

Product Questions & Answers

  • I am thinking of buying this product and am a bit confused - would I still need to use the Solo Wafer-Thin Die Adapter too? I am not seeing where it is used in the video, but they didn't use the silicone mats either.   By: kalliope_ (07-Aug-15) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

    • You just need your base plate, the precision plate (with the writing facing down), the paper and die and covered with another plate. You do not need the Solo Walter adapter. The precision plate is fairly new and was made to better cut the Intricate dies. Hope that helps. By: Dianequinlan (10-Aug-15) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

  • I just bought the big shot plus- I read that you need a precision base plate for all wafer - thin dies. However, in the description of the extended magnetic base plate, it states that it is for wafer- thin dies....do I need both? Or will the magnetic plate work? The dies are expensive and I don't want to risk ruining them...   By: Margelicious (17-Dec-16) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported.

    • From all of my research, the magnetic base plate, along with the precision base plate for wafer think dies. However, if you look on sizzix.com they have a set of keys...these keys tell you how thick every single possible emboss, cut, (thin or thick dies) needs to be. I am ordering this along with the keys to get an accurate measurement because i believe some super thin dies require the thin shim mylar or 2. THE SIZZIX KEYS IS THE TICKET FOR MEASURING THE THICKNESS OF EACH SANDWICH!!! I will try to find you the product # thanks, Tonya By: trb (20-Dec-16) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

  • I have watched a video where they have used the precision cutting plate and they state "NO MARKS LEFT ON PLATE FROM DIE" ! I have not had the same results. Every thinlit die, wafer thin die leaves a mark on the plate. Is this natural or something wrong with the plate I have. Used plate with Big Shot Plus...Magnetic Platform and the standard platform that comes with the Plus . The marks do not seem to harm any cutting, but will it eventually wear out where all the cuts are ? ? ?   By: Clickityklak (20-Jun-15) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

    • I remember the video. I just received my plate today, so I haven't had a chance yet to use it, but when I took it out of the heavy plastic packaging I noticed marks on the cutting side of the plate. I don't know if they're scratches or just "stuff". I'm hoping they won't affect the cutting either, but I think I'll make an effort to move the dies around so they won't get concentrated in one spot. Good luck! By: missanne14 (22-Jun-15) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    • From Tim Holtz video I understand that the precision base plate is for thin dies that have a lot ove detail. It is not for thin dies with large open spaces like nesting circles or squares. He warned that using it on dies with large openings could warp the die. So save this for detail dies with small areas for more accurate cuts.
