I can see the value of having both sizes, just because of wear and tear. I do only have the size of cutting plates I described before and so far they are working fine.
Good luck enjoying learning how to use it. Don't get frustrated - every piece of paper requires a different sandwich. Sometimes I just add a couple pieces of copy paper to get the sandwich just right, thus a good impression - that takes experiementing.
I've wondered if humidity also has something to do with it, just like it makes a difference with breadmaking.
