I was just reading on a new site for all things Die.... I think it's called TopDog Dies........to use a cutting plate without a platform, on the bottom, and another cutting plate on the top of your sandwich, and use shims in between. I too bought Movers n' Shapers without a base.....never have been able to even find out what a base looks like.......and I use cereal boxes cut-to-plate-size for shims, as many as I need to make the sandwich fit, depending on which die. The Movers n' Shapers are "steel rule dies", whatever that means. It's scary, looks like it won't work, not having a platform, but the dies are still selling , new Movers 'n Shapers without the base, so I guess it must not matter.
