You get one set with your machine but it never hurts to have an extra pair. I sometimes use a smaller top plate if cutting a small die but always have this plate on the bottom. I highly recommend this accessory.
I bought this adapter plate and it works great for the really thin dies I have or when I need an extra shim under something I am die cutting. Don't use it often though.
