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!
It makes getting precise cuts very simple. REMEMBER to use the clear cutting pads with it. If you put it through with the dies on top of the plate itself it cuts into the plastic directions on top and can actually make placing the metal die cuts more difficult as they want to drop into the grooves. I did that accidentally a couple of times and I'm so mad at myself! One thing that really doesn't lend itself to being a quality product is that it isn't magnetic on both sides - just the one - so I can't turn it over to use the other side. Kinda
