Note: From January 2012 the maximum width of the Grand Calibur was extended to take 8.5" and all the new plates and accessories are changing to reflect this. Older machines can take the new size but require you to remove the feed tray, this makes it a little more difficult to use but, if you purchase the replacement plates pack at the new size they have included a new tray to update your machine.
Note: - In January 2012 the Grand Calibur was updated to be able to take an 8.5" sheet as standard (they used to take A4 at 8.25"), though they could be used for wider by removing the feeder tray. The older machines are able to take and work with the new size plates but need a new tray for easy use. This pack contains one tray at the new size.
The Junior Metal Shim is to be used in the Grand Calibur® Die Cutting and Embossing Machine (NOTE: Not for use with the Spellbinders Artisan X-plorer™ Machine). Great for not only cutting metals but for cutting those intricate designed die templates. Cut and emboss sandwiches for our Grand Calibur Machine are as follows:
Cutting Sandwich (stack from bottom to up): 1. Spellbinders Base Plate A; 2. Junior Metal Shim; 3. Medium; 4. Die Template (cut ridges down); 5. Either Pink Embossing Plate or Raspberry Spacer Plate (depending on thickness of sandwich) NOTE: Do NOT use with Imperial Gold dies – debossing designs will cut through. Do NOT use white cutting plate with the Junior Metal Shim.
