That is a great idea! I never thought of painters tape, I've always tried using small pieces of card stock strategically placed...not always successful. I will definitely get a piece of the tape and have it taped to my Bug for easy use. I got a metal shim, thinking it would solve the problem, but like you mentioned it sometimes takes several times through with persnickety dies to get a good cut.

Thanks again for the tip!
