    No multipurpose platform but cuts as smooth as butter, January 20, 2012
    By 
    sandawana56 “sandawana56″ (United States) –

    I purchased this machine from Joanns more than 16 months ago when it first came out but I see the price has not changed much. I really like this machine for ease of use and the fact that I can use 12″ paper but the killer is that an appropriately sized multipurpose platform was never included with this very expensive machine. I called Sizzix when I first purchased the machine and they assured me that they would be releasing a multipurpose platform for the Big Shot Pro but they took a long time to do so.

    It appears the Sizzix Big Shot Pro Accessory – Solo Platform, Shim & Wafer Thin Die Adapter UPC841182060457 Dimension 14 1/4″ x 12 1/4″ x 5/8″ is now available at $35+ for this machine. Until I buy this accessory I am using the multipurpose platform from my smaller Sizzix 655268 Big Shot Cutting-and-Embossing Roller-Style Machine. It does mean however that I can’t use the larger wafer-thin dies until I get the accessory.

    This machine is very heavy and has a large footprint but if you have the room for it, is a worth-while purchase because it cuts quietly and as smooth as butter. I’m sticking to this machine and my Cricut Expression because they can both handle 12″ paper.

    Whats not to like?, February 25, 2013

    Looking through the previous reviews, they seem to range from Love it, to Hate it! Most of those that dislike it, seem to have been surprised by its size.
    First thing I would say to anyone thinking of getting a new Die cutting machine, is do your research. Have a look on the Sizzix website, and get the details for the machine. It is big, and it is heavy. You will NOT want to be moving this beast around. It weighs around 40lbs, and its footprint is almost 26″ long by 23″ wide, including the handle. IF you have a place you can set it up and leave it, then this machine has to be the way to go. Its a once & forever upgrade, which is why I bought one. I was fed up with dies/folders etc getting bigger than my current machine would take. I figure that with a 12 1/2″ opening,(the 13″ opening quote is not correct!)and a 14″ long by 12″ wide cutting area, I will never want anything bigger. Despite what one or two people say, this machine WILL cut every die on the market, from wafer thin ones to the supersized ones.I have used the old Red,Yellow & Green Sizzix steel rule dies,Quickutz dies,Tim Holtz dies(including the long Strip dies),Cuttlebug/generic embossing folders, Fiskars Texture Plates, Memory Box, Cheery Lyn,PTI,Nestabilities as well as Brass Embossing stencils.You just have to try out different plate/shim combos for the Non Sizzix stuff.
    What you should do, is look around for the BIG SHOT PRO Kit, which comes with the BSP AND all the plates necessary for whatever you may want to use it for. It is easy to operate,and its weight & footprint help to make it so easy- there is no way this machine will move or slide around in use.The plates all have info on them as to which you need for different dies and folders. You can also cut or emboss a number of dies or folders at the same time, as long as they are all the same type. For instance, I can emboss 4 regular cuttlebug type folders at once, or cut 4 Tim Holtz Strip dies.It is sturdy and seems well built. Personally, I can’t fault it. It is exactly what I wanted, and what I expected. Beneath the carrier tray there is storage space- I keep a notebook for ‘sandwich’ recipes there, along with other odds & ends.This is one purchase I have no regrets about, but as I said, look for The Big Shot Pro kit, rather than just the BSP on its own. The kit is a little dearer, but cheaper than buying them all separately.

    BOOK REVIEW
    (VINE VOICE)
      

    The fact that the center roller is covered with a plastic casing makes this machine very easy to use. The casing gives you something to hold on to while you crank the handle which takes a lot of the pressure off of your shoulder while you use the hand crank. I only had one problem with this – the scoreboard dies either do not make a clear enough impression for the score marks to show up on paper or it cuts right through the score marks. However, this problem could be more related to the die rather than the machine. I think some of the newer scoreboard dies assume you are using chipboard whereas the older ones assumed you were using paper (just eyeballing the dies, it looks like the blade depth might vary for the score lines). It does indeed take more more space than the big shot but if you really love the bigger dies, this is a very affordable option compared to the Accu-Cut machine. I’ve tried both and I actually find this one to be much much easier to use.
