    I just read a post on a yahoo group that mentioned that the dies for AccuCut work on the Accuquilt Go, has any one tried that?
    It also mentioned that the Accucut dies are cheaper...hmmm

    Hi Faten,
    Sorry, no.
    The Accucut wood accucut dies will not work in the Go.
    The wood accucut dies will work in the Studio, because it's the same cutter as the Accucut GrandeMark, which is what they call it on the Accucut side.
    With the appropriate shim, Go dies can be used in the Studio.
    Also, you cannot use Sizzix dies in the Go. The Sizzix dies are just a bit thicker and won't go thru.
    For whatever reason, Accucut runs better sales than Accuquilt, so if you have a Studio, and would like shapes for applique, it would be in your best interest to get on the Accucut mailing list too.
    I have had the GrandeMark/Studio cutter for about 15 years and hundreds and hundreds (and hundreds) of dies...

    Thank you so much for the response. I have been interested in getting the studio then recently i have been on the hunt for the Sizzix pro (the biggest). i am just trying to do more research about the variety of dies i can get. I don't want to be limited and wait for ever until a new die comes out. Hoping you have more info or anybody else on the board about the sizzex too.

    Thanks again

    The Sizzix Pro will not take Studio dies.
    The Studio dies are wood dies, 1" thick.
    Sizzix Bigz are 11/16"
    Accucut Go! dies are about 9/16 (hard to measure, edges are beveled)
    The Sizzix pro will only take plastic-backed dies, not the wood ones. If you want to use any die out there (except wafers), you will need to get a Studio.
