[quote=LITTLEBITNMCAN THE DIE CUTTING BOARD BE TURNED AROUND TO USE THE OTHER END. [/quote]

Yes, both B plates can be turned around, flipped, etc. In fact, you *should* do this to make your plates last longer.

[quote=LITTLEBITNMDO THE DIES GO ON THE END OR IN THE MIDDLE [/quote]

It doesn't matter. You can move them around.


[quote=LITTLEBITNMAND IS IT SUPPOSED TO BE REAL HARD TO TURN THEM THRU THE MACHINE. [/quote]

Yes, but it gets easier as you break in your Bug. If you think you are going to break it, then back out your plates and try again. Some bugs have come apart, so you do need to be careful.

[quote=LITTLEBITNMI HAVE SEVERAL DIES AND WAS JUST WONDERING WHERE TO PLACE THEM IN THE MACHINE OR IF YOU CAN PUT THEM IN ANY POSITION. [/quote]

Follow the directions on the plate about putting them an inch or so above the indicated line. Other than that, they can go in any position. Cuttlebug dies need to be face up (this is in the instruction book), while Sizzix dies go face down. This keeps the cutting plates and the Cuttlebug dies from warping as badly.

[quote=LITTLEBITNMALSO CAN YOU USE METAL EMBOSSING PLATES AND IF SO HOW DO YOU DO THAT.[/quote]

I have not heard about metal embossing plates, but you can use texture plates. See Cat's Sandwich Stack Rules (linked above in the first post) for different ways to do that.

Have fun with your bug!
