These plates no matter how you take care of them, doing all that Sara suggests for extending their life, just doesn't work. I've gone through three of them since I purchased this unit in August. I wish CC would at least make a package of them for less money or make a better product! The gemini works wonderfully, best cutting machine electric or manual I've ever had. The the cost of plates makes very expensive to own and run!

I love this machine..But I haven't used it 40 times and I am on my 2nd top plate. It bends and is so worped. They need to come in a 2 pk when sold with the machine and 2pk in retail stores. At almost 15.00 then shipping really starts to add up if you use this machine alot! ! I have seen other plates sold in craft stores but not the top plate. Maybe these plates can be made better for longer use.

I love my Gemini!! Yes, the plates warp after a lot of use, but so has all my other plates from other companies!! If anything they last longer, because dies just need to go through once, rather then back and forth a dozen times to get detailed dies to cut!!

Only four stars as I wish it did not buckle so soon. However, it will work but you have to hold plates tightly when inserting into the Gemini. I have to say tho this machine is used constantly, I bypass the other electronically machines. Love it!!!

I love my Gemini, however this is my second plate since Aug. I am hoping that by rotating it more faithfully it won't warp as badly. I can't say enough about my Gemini though. Its wonderful. Just wish the plate wouldn't warp so bad.

Needed to replace my cutting plate as I cut all of my 250+ dies and DID NOT flip and rotate so it warped. Still usable, cut fine even with the waves I put into it! I have faithfully flipped and rotated with the new one and have not had any warping with daily use for a month. I marked mine with a letter "A" in one corner and immediately re-orient the plate after I remove my cut to get ready for the next cut. I am getting another plate just for embossing, just like I did for my other machines...and yes, the cutting plates on my 3 other machines also warped since I didn't know the flip rotate thing.

I'm soooo happy CC now has the replacement cutting plates! I've been giving my original one a good workout. I'm a bit lazy with flipping my plates as suggested, but it still works great! Even with my plate being warped, the Gemini is so powerful and it feeds right into the machine no problem. The pressure that it has for cutting is fantastic and cuts everything. I also use a bit of low tack tape the keep my die positioned on the paper...which is what I have done with all my other die cutting machines. Then I know It won't shift and i get the best results. I will be orderkng a couple plates so I have them on hand when needed.

I love the Gemini because it allows me to cot things beautifully. The cover plates do warp and need to be replaced periodically so it can get expensive. i'd like to see a lower price for the replacements. I do rotate the plates in a variety of ways and occasionally run the plates through the Gemini without the dies. I guess this is the price for frequent use.

love my Gemini. my plates are well used. cuts through all kinds of material with ease, like a hot knife through butter as Sara would say. purchased and extra set to have on hand. my first set is warped but I did not rotate the plates as Sara instructed, but they continue to perform exceptionally, so no worries. this machine has help with all my die cutting and embossing. I have use it to emboss stencils and they are gorgeous. my order arrived quickly. would like to see more products here in the US from the UK, hopefully that will happen soon.

If you love your Gemini and use it a lot, you have to get new plates. The product is great, ordering was simple and delivery was pretty speedy. I also needed a new magnetic mat and plastic shim. But I use my Gemini nearly every day and LOVE....it!!

Q:
When will the Gemini (full size) cutting plates be back in stock? Seems CC ran out of them quite a while back and now it says the product is not currently available? Can someone at CC tell us what is going on with the cutting plate stock? I can't get them anywhere else - nobody has them in stock either.
