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.
As with all manual die cut machines, I like to have an extra set of cutting pads waiting in the wings if they become needed. So far my original pads are holding up, in spite of heavy use, but these are doing an excellent job hanging around in case they need to spring into action!
