my cuttlebug cuts felt just fine...but I have to put a piece of cardstock between plate a and b. I don't know about the sizzix...I think it does, too. I'm trying to think who has one of those, is it Cynthia?

here is a thread where we talked about this for a bit. I don't really remember what was even said....

eBay Guides - Which Sizzix System to Buy
This is the one I have. It cuts through felt easily.

I hv Sizzix Original...

As long as you hv the converter, i.e for Sizzix machine, you CAN still use CB dies without any problem.

Sizzix dies and CB dies cuts felts, perfectly.. QK dies, cuts felts too.

I have the big shot. They do not sell the Sizzix original anymore.
It cuts felt easily. When you purchase it it comes with the adaptor to use the cuttlebug dies.

I wanted the original and called the sizzix outlet in late March and they told me there were none left and they were not making them anymore. Lucky you! I bet you got the last one!

that's crazy that they don't carry the original anymore. I got mine off of craigslist, so I never even knew what it's "name" was.
