What materials can your Chrome Precision Base Plate cut?

  • Paper
  • Cardstock
  • Burlap
  • Craft plastic
  • Craft metal
  • Fabric
  • Craft aluminum
  • Canvas
  • Lightweight suede
  • Lambskin
  • Thin cork

How to use the Chrome Precision Base Plate:

  • The Chrome Base Plate is a replacement for your standard multi-purpose platform.
  • Unlike the standard multi-purpose platform you're probably used to using, the Chrome Base Plate's instruction diagrams actually go face-down on the machine with the shiny chrome surface facing up.
  • The next layer is going to be your material, not a cutting pad.
  • Your Thinlit dies are also going to be placed with the cutting side facing your material and the Chrome Base Plate without a cutting pad beneath it (crazy, right?)
  • A cutting pad over the Thinlit on top completes your sandwich and readies you for your pass through the machine
  • Your Chrome Base Plate is so strong that it can last thousands of passes through your die cutting machine with the blade side down without getting a single mark, scratch, or dent!

Tips and reminders:

  • Ensure your chrome side is facing up and the instruction diagrams are facing down.
  • Do not use with the Big Shot Foldaway or the Big Shot Plus machines as usage will reduce the effectiveness of the cutting pads and dies.
  • Do not use the Chrome Precision Base Plate with steel-rule dies as damage may occur.

Just think of all the die cuts you can make in no time at all now that you're not spending all your time cleaning up your cuts or poking out every last bit of paper. And you won't have to worry about damaging or warping your favorite dies.

    Works great!

    I purchased this chrome precision base plate because I bought some Crafters Companion detailed dies that Sara recommended only buying if you had a Gemini. I really wanted to be able to use their beautiful dies, but didn't need another gadget when I already have Sizzix machines and all the sandwich supplies. I just tested this base plate with the Crafters Companion detailed die, craft cardstock, and a Vagabond2. I put it through forward and backward; the details cut perfectly! Still needed to poke out some of the detailed work, but again, cut perfectly through the paper. I don't know what the difference is between this one and the original precision base plate, as I never had one. Thank you Sizzix for making this chrome precision base plate available, I can now use any detailed dies with my Sizzix machines!

    Always appreciate the expedient shipping too!

    New precision base plztd

    I absolutely love my new chrome precision base plate. Not only does is look fabulous but, there are no little slivers of paper stuck on it like with the original one. It stays shiny and new. Oh by the way, it cuts fabulously as well. Great addition to my arsenal.

    amazing

    I had seen this on a tutorial by Tim Holtz, and it is everything he promised. It makes such a clean cut on fine detail dies. There are a few I always wanted to use, but they were always clogged with little bits that didn't cut. Now I have much better results with the chrome plate. It doesn't get cuts in it like other pads so it should last a long time. It is not recommended for the big kick plus, so I switch to my standard big kick. It puts a fair amount of pressure on your dies so I would be careful not to use open dies, just the ones with small details. But if you have some detail dies that make you frustrated, this may be the piece of equipment that will save them for you.

    A great addition to my die cutting arsenal

    I had put aside my Big Shot because it was no longer cutting
    easily. I decided to try the Precision Base plate and I really like it. For really thin dies, I still have to use a metal or other shim but that's okay--I'm back to using my Big Shot exclusively. The Base plate aids in cutting intricate dies, usually with one pass, sometimes two. And I like that it doesn't warp or scratch like the acrylic base plates.

    Works even better than the old one did!

    I bought this Chrome precision plate out of curiosity. I already had the sizzix precision cutting pad that I bought through Stampin' Up! in 2015.
    I never understood why the precision base plate said NOT to use framelit dies (outline type of dies with no inner intricacies), with the precision plate. I hadn't read the warning from SU or Sizzix that they would warp before using my plate. I tend to use stitched rectangles dies and Spellbinders Card Creators sets a lot and not one of them warped.
    I have 2 problem children that even the older precision plate had problems with. Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles and Cottagecutz Garden Fence and Gate dies. I tried everything even with the plate, waxed paper, shims, etc and not all of the tiny cuts would go through with 1 pass, it would take up to 4 or 5 and I still had to be carefull popping out the chads. Of course, 4 to 5 times is better than not at all with the regular base plate and cutting pads.
    But then I bought the Chrome Precision Base Plate.
    First thing I tested it on was the 2nd inside die of the Resplendent Rectangles die set. ONE PASS and all of the chads fell out of the spaces! Just ONE!. Then I tried the Cottagecutz set.
    ONE pass and it was cut through.
    That is all the news you need to get one of these pads if you have problem children dies too!!

    Like butter

    Helps cut thinlits that are very intricate like butter. Not to be used with framelits. It’s a great product to cut out all the little teeny tiny pieces from the Dooley and the Halloween gate dies.

    Shiney and Very Useful

    I own the previous version of this plate and am pleased to see the update. Using this Base Plate makes the projects go more quickly and eliminates the use of a second acrylic pad. Great Job, Guys!

    Can this plate be used with the Big Shot Plus   By: User (02-Aug-18) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • This should not be used with the Plus machine. It says it right on the label on the top of the product as displayed in the image above. My understanding is that doing so will ruin your Plus machine. By: tjteabo (30-Sep-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

  • I am really disappointed that you recommend not using the precision plate with the big shot plus. Is there a specific reason why, other than it may ruin the machine. Why? If I can't use it, what are your suggestions for intricate dies.   By: fremontbear (05-Apr-19) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported.

  • Will this plate dull my intricate metal dies?   By: mca390 (28-Oct-18) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • I have used the chrome plate and haven't any issues with it dulling my dies. It cuts great and it comes cleanly out of the die when I used the brush roller to get the small pieces out. By: tbguinea13 (31-Oct-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    • I have had it for a few months. It does not seem to dull my dies. My plates are a bit bowed but about the same as they were with the regular plate. I think they will bow with use no matter what and do not seem to effect the cut of the dies at all! By: smain (20-Nov-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

  • The precision base plate says that the result will be to lessen life of dies-do you recommend not using it?
    Nancy Haussler   By: Nhaussler (14-May-18) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • It DOESN'T lessen the life of your dies, it LENGTHENS the life of your dies, because you're only running it though one time. It lessens the amount of passes through your die cutting machine. For example you only have to run it though one time to get results. You DON'T have to run it though over and over again. I hope that I explained this clearly. If not, send me a message.

    • I just received the chrome precision base plate yesterday, so I cannot comment on how it will affect my dies. I hope the information you have is not correct! By: padam852 (15-May-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!
