Here is the sandwich for the above :
from the base upwards :
CLEAR CUTTING PLATE
WHITE BASE PLATE
DIE EDGE UPWARDS
METAL CUTTING PLATE
SETTING ON THE MACHINE : BETWEEN 5 AND 9 ( MAY VARY )
POSITION YOUR DIE NEAR THE FRONT CENTRE OF YOUR PLATES ( but leave a gap of at least a few inches for the plates to engage in the rollers )
RUN THROUGH THE MACHINE A COUPLE OF TIMES
TURN YOUR METAL PLATE OVER EACH TIME YOU USE IT RO KEEP IT AS FLAT AS POSSIBLE.
There are some very awkward dies made in the USA which have no embossing holes ..these dies will always cause you problems in any machine and are not recommended !
