They used layers of tape over areas that seem to have trouble cutting. Might be worth trying if you're having trouble. Here is a link to the video: How to Shim Intricate Memory Box Dies - YouTube
Hope that helps.
I am hobbling with my knee recovery. So I am playing with all kinds of my toys and tools. Good time to learn new things. I dont have my shim yet so I am going to give it a whirl without it. Keeping my fingers crossed
