    Terrible isn't it (appointments), I do hope you hear soon Pam, its no joke being in pain and you've been waiting a long time too Pam. It makes me mad when "they've" banged on several times about if you've any concerns STILL go to your doctor and get it checked out. Which hymn book do they all have, they sure aren't all singing from the same one. My doc requested endoscopy for me at beg of January, still waiting, some days I get so crammned with everything & everybody (Lancashire expression, means cross/angry !) because of pain/discomfort.

    I checked yesterday and it's a month since I got the letter from the specialist so at least another two months to go.
    That’s a long time to wait if you are in pain
    I would give surgery a call and see if you can get some pain killers
    Our doctors are mostly doing online face to face consultations
    So I am going to wait get an appointment at the surgery at some point
    Don’t think I have anything urgent just a bit of niggling doubt at the back of my mind
    I have only been to the doctors 5 times in six years
    3 of the appointments were all in one month I got a swift telling of from doctor for not going earlier lol
    You don't have to be as mad as a box of frogs to be here but it helps:mysmilie_13:

    I'm getting really confused now (not hard for me). I've got an Ellison Big Shot and am trying to get new plates for it rather than buy new, although a new one isn't too expensive. Is it now called a Sizzix Big Shot?

    I think so looking at the pictures of both of them. The company that sells Sizzix stuff is called Ellison.

    Send 'em an email Pam, they're sure to be able to help and it'll save you getting the wrong ones.

    I think that might have been my trouble. That and having to plug it into the leccy and my laptop. The cable wasn't really long enough to stretch from my laptop to my craft table, and it seemed to take an age to cut whatever it was I wanted to cut. New mats and blades seemed to cost an arm and a leg. I reckoned life was way too short, so dumped it a plastic bag on the shelf.

    When I decided to have a sort out it was one of the first items on the list to go. As I tend to make standard size cards, 6x4 7x5, that sort of thing, I already had quite a collection of dies, so didn't really need it.

    Just found some old instructions for the Wizard - to cut a die you do use the white spacer plate with the 2 thick white plates, then remove the spacer plate and add the rubber mat to emboss.

    Thanks Borderline, I have got the instructions but I am wondering if the white plate I've got is the right one. Wonder if I've put the wrong one in the box. The one I've got is smaller than the thick white ones is yours please?

    Don't know if I'm being cack-handed.

    That's same combination as I use with my Gemini Borderline. Do you remember the late Robert who was part of what used to be "Once upon a stamp" ? he loved his Wizard, used it all the time bless him. I daresay its what you get used to and what does what you want without hassle makes us lean towards one more than another!

    Oh my Goodness, that reminds me, I got my Wizard from 'Once Upon a Stamp' and I'm sure I had a nice letter or email from them, but I didn't really know of himself. Was he on TV? I'm trying to think how long ago it was. I received a couple of little dies with the Wizard and then I very bravely (for me) took myself off to the NEC Birmingham and got some of the basic Spellbinders nesting shapes. Met the Glitter Girls at the show, remember that. I hadn't seen much craft TV at that point, Alan and Barry ring a bell !!! Michele Marsden persuaded me to buy her Create and Craft 3-cd box sets and I never looked back!
    The Spacer Plate was smaller than the 2 big white plates if I remember rightly, so the cutting area was quite limited which is why I later got the GC.
