An extra set of cutting plates is essential when using Sizzix machines. Cutting plates are meant to be disposable. I've foud that by purchasing an extra set, I'm able to rotate out the battered and used thoroughly plates. With the original set, I use the same plate as a cutting surface. Once that one is done, I am able to swap out the used plate for a brand new plate, therefore keeping my diecutting uninterrupted. As I only use one plate for cutting, the extra pair of plates, extends my time tremendously.
I had heard of this type of platform and really didn't understand how it all worked. I recently won some small thin die cut tools that I needed to purchase this platform for. Imagine how wonderful it is to be able to anchor your die cuts (magnetic) solidly over your paper (that you are cutting) so that you can see exactly the position and what will result from the cut that you make! You can pinpoint in particular designs or parts of a piece of paper so that you get exactly what you want in that die cut! It works great and I wish i had got it sooner!
I have always had problems with my dies moving while making a cut. Not anymore. They stay put and I have perfect cuts all the time! I would recommend it to everyone!
