Question Nestabilities with Cuttlebug and the B plate

I am cutting out about 50 large scalloped circles with Nestabilities and the Cuttlebug. I'm cutting out SU DSP. After about 8 circles, my top B plate is looking pretty warped. Should I flip it over and let it correct in the other direction?? Will it continue to bend and then break?? Or do I just keep Cuttlebugging away and not worry about it??

THANKS A BUNCH !!

Nancy

I think it's more likely to break if you turn it over. Just keep using it like it is and you should be fine : )

I flip mine each time I run something through... haven't had one break yet and I've been cuttlebugging HEAVILY since Christmas. I'm picky though and don't like my B plate to be misshapen!

I heard you should rotate your plates, flip them over, etc. every time you use them. I didn't know this before I got my bug, so I was using them the same way every time, and mine got very warped, like yours. I have since started rotating and flipping those same plates, and they did not break, and are less warped now. Just wanted to let you know my experience.

Hi Nancy,

I demonstrate the cuttlebug with the Spellbinders Nestabilities all over the US at consumer shows..... I always flip my B plate over and have no problems.

Flip it over side-to-side AND end-to-end for the longest life on your B plate. (I always keep a spare too)..

Nancy,
Yes, flipping from the beginning is a good idea. But I think you were probably asking if you flip it now that it's warped, will it break? Probably! I would have a spare on hand before you try it. Or still have a spare on hand and keep using it just like you have been, because I'm afraid as soon as you flip it now that it's warped, it will probably break!

That's what I love about Spellbinders' Wizard machine -- the plates for it are more pliable and I doubt will never break!

Exactly, now that it's warped, you should just keep using it the same way (not flipping and stressing the plate). It will still cut/emboss perfectly (atleast mine does!!).

What is the Nestie "plate sandwich" that you are supposed to use? When I borrow my mom's QK Revolution dies I do A, then B then CS, then die upside down then C. My B is warping with them some, but not bad.

Hijack here. My plates are so scratched up that when I emboss my nesties, it leaves scratch marks on the back of the cs. Anyone had that problem?

Hi! Just cut a piece or two of printer paper to the same size as your C/S. Place it between your scratched plate and your C/S. I think that will help.

Actually, THANKs for the hijack!! Mine is getting pretty scratched up too - and though I haven't noticed that issue yet, I'm sure it's only a matter of time

I was reading my instruction book last night. I belive it was at the back of the book where it instructs you on how to care for your cuddlebug and i read that it is good to flip the plates.

Another flipper, and I haven't had to get any new plates since I bought them in September. Although I always wonder how much longer they will last because they are so warn and warped but they still work great!

This might be off the subject a little and I don't know of how many of you have seen this, but it tells you all of the machines that you can use to use your Nestabilities. Here ist he link to Nichole's tutorial over at Papertrey and it has tons of info

http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capt...faq/index.html

I know Nichole uses her Cuttlebug a lot and her plates don't look like they are so scratched up that they leave marks on the cs.

Sorry if this is off but I thought I'd share

You all have been so helpful!! Here's what I did ~ I finished the 50+ scalloped circles without incident (still had my other B plate just in case). Then, once I knew that project was 'safe' -- I did flip the B plate I had been using!! It seems like it helped straighten it out a bit, and didn't break ... YIPPEE!

Now I'll do as suggested -- flip in both directions on my plates, and maybe pick up a spare B plate (just in case).

It was so comforting to hear all of the responses.... of course, now I have to go find that thread about stamping injuries!! I decided it was faster if I cranked in both directions, and once when I was cranking backwards so the plates moved towards me, I was guiding the plates on the backside of the C'bug and as it got closer, I ended up pinching my finger between the plates. OH MY. That really hurt. I expected a big blood blister the next day but the next day it didn't even hurt at all, so I was lucky

Also, I'm glad someone added the link to Nichole's C'bug guide. I follow her C'bug plate sequences whenever I use my Nestabilities and it works wonderfully.

Thanks again for all of your help!! SCSers are the best

Nancy

Hi! I was reading your comments about flipping the plates on the Cuttlebug. What is a C/S and, where do you buy extra plates? I sometimes flip my plates but not regularly. I guess I will now. I just started using Nesties. I love them!

C/S actually just means cardstock (alot of times people will also abbreviate it as just plain ol' "cs"). You can get replacement plates pretty much anywhere that you can get the Cuttlebug itself (in stores and online). Hope this helps . . .

Hi Cindy,

The Spellbinders Nestability sandwich is the same sandwich for using Spellbinders dies and QK dies.... Both the QK dies and Spellbinders dies are chemically etched and the same thickness..... you can see me use QK dies with the Wizard or Spellbinders dies with EVERY consumer machine on [url]www.youtube.com you can follow the sandwich for the cb machine that you see me do using the Spellbinders dies because QK dies are the same thickness.
The difference between QK and Spellbinders dies is that SB dies will EMBOSS AND STENCIL>>>>> unlike all the rest. Other wise for the cutting step....the sandwiches are the same. Flipping your CB plates over makes the wear more even. Flip your plates from the beginning and they will last longer.....It is also NORMAL for cut marks to get into the plates because these are cut mats.... that is what they are supposed to do. Also if you notice cut marks getting into you designs... put a THIN piece of paper down on the mat before you place your die down to cover up the marks. Hope this helps!
Hugs
Stacey

Ok...I am reading fast and maybe missed something...but I had always done the A & C plates on the bottom, Nestie Die blade up, and then the CS and the B plate on top...I hated that my dies would slide and I couldn't see where they were exactly when I put the B plate on.

Am I reading right...I can flip and put the B plate on the A, then CS and then the die face down, with C on top?

It makes sense...same idea only backwards...just making sure there is no reason why this is bad??


Thanks!
Cher

Flipping is not flipping the order, simply flipping the B plate upside down because if you keep it constantly the same way it starts to warp/curve/bend, so you're sort of countering that. But it has nothing to do with changing the order of the sandwich!! HTH.
