Default Help! Bent framelit!

At card class a newbie was using the demos lots of labels framelits and we weren't watching closely. She put the two cutting plates on the platform and the die on top! The die is now curved because of the rollers. Anyone have an idea of how to get the curve to go flat? We've been looking online and so far haven't found any help!

Well, knowing me, I would probably run it back through with the curved side up not changing my mistake sandwich....LOL That would probably not be a good idea though. Thinking about it I would run it through my Big Shot with proper sandwich, paper and curved side of framelit up. I've had a couple framelits warp slightly just from heavy use and pressure from my Big Shot. Just flipped framelits over and ran them through Big Shot several times.

Lucky she didn't run it through the other way or the rollers would be cut! LOL demo says she's been running it through with proper sandwich and cutting side up and its getting straighter! She says it is still cutting so hopefully it will continue to straighten out the more she uses it!

New one on me and I thought I made/make every mistake there is! Aw poor thing. She must have been very embarrassed. Well now we know what will happen if you do that. I might have guessed it would embed into the plate.

Sounds like it will keep flattening with use. They could also just leave it between the plates and puts heavy books on it and walk away for a couple days....then run it some more times...by the same token it is light enough to bend like that, hopefully it will be to go back to normal or close enough. But it is cutting so that's cool.

We've learned that the top plate keeps the die from curling up! LOL. I knew it because I've run paper through with no plate and it curled, but I wasn't watching her closely and didn't see what she had done!

I have one that is permanently curved. It is still usable. I have curved some dies and I gently bend in the middle to flatten them out. Open dies like circles are curving on me all the time. Why? Because I use a magnetic plate all the time.

I use the magnetic plate all the time and my dies don't bend. They will if you use the precision base plate on open frame dies, though. My plates do curl but I've learned to cut cutting side up whenever possible.

I've had some bend from overuse, and I was able to just gently bend them back the other way... I've actually (a few times now) run a die through the Big Shot with another forgotten die still sitting on the cutting plate, and it's indented into the back of the die, but doesn't affect the cutting.

I guess we have all been new at something, some time or another and I can certainly feel for the person that did this. I'm sure it was unintentional and I'm sure she was upset at herself if it was brought to her attention. When I first started, several years ago, I wasn't being supervised and I put a die, cut side down on the platform, you know, the platform for the sizzix and big shot, and cut a big ole honking die cut in it!!! No one said anything at all, but I still cried at my being new and not knowing what I had done till it was too late. I even offered to pay for a new platform and she wouldn't hear of it. She still uses it till this day, with my mark on it, of course. hahaha She said every time she uses it she fondly thinks of me. But everybody does blunders at one time or another and most of the time we learn from them.

So true! She did feel bad, but we went on as though it were nothing and demo says it still cuts and is straightening out each time she uses it.

My smallest Spellbinder's circle is bent. (Not sure how it happened.) It is small enough that it is not possible to bend it back by hand, so since I can still use it, I'm not too worried. It doesn't hold to the magnetic piece I keep it on, though, so I have to be careful that it doesn't slip off and get lost forever in the great black hole in my stamping room.

I sent two dies through my little old old portable cutter that just takes one plate. So far they are usable but quite bent. They don’t seem to be straightening out and won’t cling to the magnetic plate despite multiple trips through the Big Shot. Embarrassing.

I used the wrong side up once on my precision base plate, and have a "lovely" design in it now.....

You are not alone .... my very first cut on the precision base plate.
Thankfully, I have not required re-training since that day.

I’ve cut almost every not supposed to cut on plate on every machine I’ve ever owned. I think my magnetic plate is the only one I haven’t messed up yet. I’m going to visit a stamping friend this month and I’m packing my own Big Shot plates to make sure I don’t mess up hers.
