Question SU Magnetic Platform

Has anyone out there actually used the "Big Shot Magnetic Platform" from Stampin Up? I'm wondering if the magnets are strong enough to hold the die in place with the cutting edge down over the stamped image? Of course, Using the cutting pad between die + paper and platform. AND has the original Multipurpose Platform been discontinued by Sizzix?

Yes, I have used the magnetic platform.
Yes, it is strong enough to hold your framelit, etc. down on the cardstock in the proper sandwich of magnetic platform, cutting plate, cardstock/paper to be die cut, top cutting plate.
The plate holds the die beautifully. I wish I had had this a long, long time ago.

In answer to your 2nd question, I'm not sure whether or not Sizzix will keep the regular Multipurpose platform. You could probably contact Sizzix via their website to ask. The new magnetic platform is not a replacement for Multipurpose one, as the magnetic platform does not have tab layers for various needs.

Hope this helps!

Yes, the original Multipurpose Platform has been discontinued. My understanding is Sizzix replaced it with a longer version so extended cutting plates are no longer needed.

The Magnetic Platform is on the top of my wishlist.

I am waiting not so patiently for mine to arrive. My demo told me they are on backorder until at least July 1. Then she said it is first come to those who ordered first. So I could be waiting a long while since convention is in July

I love the magnetic platform. Today I cut out the Backyard Basics set and it worked perfectly. This is one of those why didn't they think of this before things. Glad I bought it.

I've heard the magnetic platform doesn't work so well if your cutting plates are warped. Would anyone who has used it like to share your experience on that?

Can that magnetic plate be used in the Sizzix Vagabond as well as the Big Shot? I want the ability to hold stuff with the magnets but not if it won't work in my Vagabond of course.

I am going to be ordering some time in the next two weeks. This is a bummer that it is back ordered. Hope yours arrives soon.

Question Magnetic platform

How does it work? Is it just a magnet sheet that holds the sandwich together?

Here's a Youtube video that shows the difference between the two platforms.

So sorry to hear that. I guess it was good that I ordered it online when I did. I had a feeling it would be popular, but I didn't realize how much.

The magnetic pull is not as strong with warped plates, although it still holds. I believe I am going to get a second set of plates just for the magnetic platform the next time they are on sale somewhere. Meantime, I straightened out my plates quite a bit by doing a marathon embossing session. That improved the magnetic pull quite a bit with those plates.

BTW, for those of you that have used the Genius Magnetic Platform, the pull on this one is much stronger. Just this evening I was at a craft store that sells the Genius and I wanted to confirm my suspicion, as it had been a while since I had handled a Genius. I'd say the magnetic strength of the SU/Sizzix platform without cutting pads is at least 5x greater than the Genius without cutting pads. You know how the Genius has magnetic "cold spots" - small patches where there doesn't seem to be any magnetic pull? There aren't any of those on the SU platform as far as I can tell. There is actually a warning label about using it around pacemakers and I don't think that is an overreaction. The other thing I have found interesting about the magnetic platform is that I don't need to use my metal shim plate on about half the wafer thin dies that I would normally need to with both the Multipurpose Platform that came with my Big Shot and the long one I bought separately. It seems to be a better fit for wafer thin dies somehow.

All in all, I think this is a truly useful item for wafer thin die users - especially if using tape and/or sticky notes annoy you.

yes, this is disappointing. I also ordered and my demo never told me it was back ordered that long. New catalog and something is already back ordered.

I am also curious about the use with the Vagabond.

If the platform works in the Big Shot, it should work in the Vagabond. The opening is the same width.

Someone said it didn't work in her original Cuttlebug. I think the CB opening is slightly narrower than the BS.

I'm thinking it will work in the Vagabond but I'll wait to see if someone who has actually used with the Vagabond to chime in. When I "assume" you know that works. . .

Doesn't SU! have a "Contact Us" email address at the bottom of their web page? They have got to know the answer to this. If they worked with Sizzix to develop this platform, I would bet money that the platform has been tested in at least all of the Sizzix-built machines, and possibly some of other brands. At the very least, I doubt they would tell you it will work if they actually aren't sure. I also suspect Sizzix knows and would tell you if you asked them. They seem like the kind of company that doesn't want to see their customers breaking their machines due to lack of information.

Yes, the magnetic platform works just fine with the Vagabond. Everything that works in the Big Shot will also work in the Vagabond and the Big Kick. I have both the Vagabond and the Big Shot, and I know that the magnetic platform works because I tried it.

I use the Genius and so far so good, although that's interesting to hear that the Sizzix one has a stronger pull. One thing I like about the Genius is that I don't need a cutting plate directly on top of the magnetic platform and the top cutting plate is a self-healing mat. So far it hasn't shown any signs of warping, but I haven't had it that long. Of course, the fact that there's no bottom plate means I need to do all my cutting with the die facing up. Obviously that's a problem if you prefer to stamp first and line up your die around the stamped image.

Yeah, I really like to be able to line the die up with more precision than what the Genius presently offers. That said, those self-healing cutting mats are an excellent idea. I suspect in the next couple of years we are going to see further innovations on the platform/mat/plate side of things with all the die cutters on the market.

SU! got the magnetic platform as a first release. I ordered mine the day of it was released and love it! Works with the dies wonderfully.

Then there are a few online stores that let you pre-order the platform for a later release. This one Scrapbooking Made Simple for Dies Stamps & So Much More is cheaper than SU!, but won't get them until August.

Mine is on backorder too. Unfortunately these can't be sent in bulk by plane because of the magnets. So it takes longer to receive the shipments from Sizzix. SU is filling the backorder as shipments are received.

Does anyone know if this will work in the Cuttlebug? Would someone be willing to share the dimensions of this plate? Thanks!

I have also heard that it doesn't work in the Cuttlebug. However, the platform is 6 1/8" x 8 7/8" x 5/8".

Thanks, I was afraid it would not work and did not want to spend the money to find out.

I just heard that SU is suspending all orders of it because the demand is so high and they have sold out. I don't think they anticipate shipping again until the fall. I think that backorders will ship first, so if you haven't got one on order it could be months before you are able to get one. I hope some of the other retailers will have some in stock soon, but I suspect that their supply will sell out pretty fast too.

Let us know if you got it or not. My demo is at convention, so I am not sure when I will know when mine is expected or was magically delivered while she was gone.

I think this product was more popular than even Sizzix anticipated. I read on the Stampin' Pretty (Mary Fish) site today that SU went through what they thought would be a 13 week supply in 3 weeks. Would be interesting to know how many platforms that was. When I ordered mine on July 2 they were backordered until Aug. 29th. So I wait. If I had known it would have been on my initial order. Mary also indicated SU was receiving periodic shipments and filling orders in the order they were received.

I love SU, but it is really annoying that they didn't better anticipate the popularity of this item. I am a hobbyist demo and I have two of these on backorder. =(

I think Sizzix didn't quite anticipate the demand, either. Between the magnetic platform stock issues with Stampin' Up and the back log from their recent 75% off sale (they didn't anticipate the amount of orders), it seems to me that Sizzix is only now learning just how popular they've actually become. I guess if you're in business, better to have that discovery than the other way around.

Can the Sizzix magnetic platform be used for embossing with Spellbinders/Nestabilities dies?
