I have a spellbinder shapeability die (poinsetta) and after playing around with the pressure slider I found I needed pressure 4 for the die cut part, then when I put back in for the embossing part I used the setting 9. The vein part didnt emboss very well at a higher number so decreased down by one and found that 9 for me was just right. I also found that when using the TH alteration dies, I needed to have the pressure set at 17 and it cut with one pass. I expect others may well find they can go lower with their pressure setting but 17 was fine for me.
The pressure switch is there to be used and not to be afraid of . I am glad to hear you are doing well and finding how the machine works best for you.Gordon
What cardstock were you using? Thats also important to know.
We are using hunkydory 250 gram cardstock which i recommend to anyone
My Machine is missing the gauge around the slider, making setting really tricky, can anyone help?
