Default Stampin' Up Die Cutting Machine

Having returned way too many die-cutting machines, because the rollers aren't working right,  I have narrowed my list of new  hopefuls to the Gemini Junior, Platinum6, or Stampin' up's machine.  I newly bought all the Tim Hol3Dembossing folders and am afraid to use them unless i am sure they will not be wrecked. I would be so grateful if you have any opinion on the Gemini, Platinum6 or Stampin' Up machines, particularly if you have used them on any 3D Embossing Folders. Many thanks in advance!

yes, I do use 3D embossing folders in my Gemini Jr.  You do have to use less in your sandwich (I think I take out the plastic shim and the metal shim), but if it is too thick the machine senses it and stops and backs out the entire sandwich.  Just NEVER force the sandwich into the machine.. gently push and if the sandwich is okay, the machine automatically feeds it in.

I use 3D folders in my Plantinum 6, just like Mac indicated you have to reduce the sandwich.

MAC and Darlenemcg, I am sooo grateful to you both.  I went ahead and bought the Geminie Jr. today and am so glad my 3D folders were not bought in vain. Shipment might take awhile, but all I was really worried about was the 3D investment i should not have made before finding a new machine. I loved hearing the machine will reject the sandwich that isn't right, and that you have used the 3D folders without problems.



 



MANY thanks to you both!
