With a swirl of powder blue-and-teal colors and the Sizzix logo bursting out brightly, this 'classic' version of the Big Shot machine offers plenty of stylish appeal with the same versatility of working with the entire Sizzix product library (with the exception of Big Pro dies) - which includes our smallest dies to our big 6" wide plastic-backed treasures and embossing tools. If that wasn't big enough, this portable roller machine cuts and embosses many different materials. Create your own one-of-a-kind cards, invitations, scrapbook pages, home decor, fashion, altered art, quilting and much more. (To ensure compatibility, always check machine and accessory requirements. Machine accessories may be sold separately.) Included with the new Big Shot are a pair of Standard Cutting Pads and the adjustable Extended Multipurpose Platform, which gives you more access to more creative options than ever. Use the extended platform and gain instant compatibility to the entire library of Sizzix embossing tools and non-steel-rule dies, including Sizzles Decorative Strip dies. And because of its extended size, the new platform offers more area to create multiple projects at once. It makes all makes all Sizzix components thinner than a Big Die compatible with the Big Shot and even works with other brands' dies and embossing tools. The diagrams on the Extended Multipurpose Platform offer easy guidelines about how to make the perfect Sizzix sandwich. For the newest Big Shot model available, check out our White & Gray model. Measures approximately 14 1/4" x 12 3/8" x 6 5/8" and features a 3-year limited warranty. Construction: Solid core steel rollers, anybody cast roller housing, solid steel gears, ABS plastic exterior. With the Sizzix Big Shot, the only limit is your own imagination - now that's a big deal, even for a Big Shot.

19SEPT2016 Update: contacted customer service and they will mail a hardware bag including screw, rubber plug, and tool. Great! Call took a few minutes with no problems. Also this item DOES have the three year warranty when purchased through Amazon. Hopefully we won't need to take advantage of that. So far, so good!
11JUN2017 Update: machine still is performing well, used at least three times weekly for card making. I periodically tighten the substitute, higher quality screw that I installed, am thinking about add a drop of blue thread locking compound. Blue is the medium strength stuff that doesn't permanently bond screw in place. Don't use red thread locker because you need to heat it if you want to remove the screw! So far the flimsy screw seems to have been the macine's only noticeable weakness. I am also going to take a closer look at the gears, visible when you remove the crank handle, and consider lubricating them, perhaps with a small dab of high pressure grease such as a moly grease. Craft on!
The best part, it cuts beautifully (with anyone's dies) and you don't have to struggle with keeping it in place with a (mostly) useless suction cup. Grab it by the handle and it takes very little pressure to keep it in place when cutting paper. Thicker material took a little more downward pressure on the handle. The first "failure" came when cutting 6 pieces of brown kraft paper at the same time. It took a little work to move it through the rollers and the bottom layer didn't cut completely.
All in all, excellent machine. Makes me want to try other Sizzix products.
First time users: Expect some initial confusion learning some of the names of the tools: extended multipurpose platform, impressions pad, silicone rubber mat
, etc. Most of these accessories have to be purchased separately, so make sure you add them with your order if there is a specific item you want to do that requires it.
Another learning curve is familiarizing yourself with the die names such as: Thinlits, wafer-thin die, Framelits, etc. Also building "a sandwich" takes time to learn, Videos help.
Also be prepared to see one of the acrylic boards get scratched. I though I had done something wrong, but that is the way it was supposed to be.
I just have this machine as you can use some of the other brand dies and embossing folders with it.
Good luck and have fun!
