NOTE FROM JANE: Please note that the following list is true of *ALL* thick steel rule dies. And most of the machines on the market that use thick steel rule dies will be able to process the items on this list. I don't want anyone to fall for a marketing campaign thinking they have to buy a specific machine or specific brand to cut these items. Most of you already own a machine that can do's the family of die not a specific brand. Its good information.
