I've changed my mind, and decided to give the precision base plate a home. I watched the video below and noticed that there seems to be a Teflon coating on one side. So I've talked to other demos on our message board, and a couple of them who have the new plates, said that yes, it was a coating and they love theirs. I'd rather not have to mess with any dryer sheets, wax paper and the pokey tool. With a coating on the metal plate, I won't worry about my dies.
