Found had to do multiple passes for intricate cuts. This resolves the problem very well.
This shim is great for intricate dies. Love my Mini Blossom machine.
My plan is to use this in the Sizzix Sidekick as well as my Big Shot machine. I did read that it works in the Big Shot so I made the purchase. I have not used it yet; however, all the products I have purchased from Altenew have been of high quality and they stand by their products and provide excellent support. Having used other metal shims I know metal shims help get a better cut for intricate dies and as a bonus help keep plates from warping.
I was excited when this item was available to help with more intricate dies. Thanks Altenew!
I ordered this along with the machine and see that it will help preserve the life of the bottom plate tremendously. The plates do not seem to warp and bend at all with this shim, that said I have not used the machine without the shim.
