Default Metal Plate for Grand Calibur Machine

I would like to purchase a metal plate for my Grand Calibur die cutting machine, does anyone use this die cutting machine and what brand would be best to use with it?

Regards diane

Here's a place.

*Memory Box METAL ADAPTER PLATE For Intricate Dies 981009

I don't have one, but I think you can probably just adjust your sandwich layers to fit the machine. There's a video on their site you can watch. The plate appears to be no thicker then tin flashing you can get at the hardware store. Some have bought the flashing as a substitute and works good. The medium thick will work well without letting the die cut through it. When watching the video you can see marks on the plate where it has been used but seems to be ok to keep using it. Not sure how long they last but I'm thinking of trying the flashing myself. Some of the edglits don't seem to want to cut through without some help. HTH.

HI Friends!

As Spellbinders produces more and more beautifully intricate dies... we hear the need of our consumers to bring back one of our most popular accessories! After the first of the year... we'll be re-releasing our magnetic placement mat. We've discovered, through our in-house testing, that it acts as the perfect addition to get the cuts that you expect from all Spellbinders dies. We Do Not recommend the use of a metal plate in your Grand Calibur machine. This has the potential to damage your machine. In the meantime, we recommend a typical shim of cardstock when cutting more intricate dies. And don't forget your wax paper for an easier release! Please let us know if you have any more questions. Thanks so much!
