I have a very high success rate with this unit.
There is a small screw in the bottom of the cutter that is used to control cut depth. Be sure to practice on scraps and make sure the cut depth is set so you cut a little beyond the thickness of the mat board. The cutter side faces the outside of the mat board. On one side of the cutter there is a line that matches up with the ends of the cuts. I put a Dymo label next to the line that reads " This Side Towards Center" so I don't forget to place the cutter correctly.
For the straight edge I use a heavy yard stick with a strip of self adhesive cork shelf liner on the back side to prevent it from slipping. I also use the same cork material on the back side of the heavy metal L square I use for some cuts.
This cutter costs less than what I just paid for one sheet of mat board. It's a good investment.
If you are a professional, you likely will want a more expensive unit. But we frame maybe one picture a year, so this works awesome for us. And if my kids lose the one I have, I'll replace it with another Logan.
The blade is a little tough to engage be when its out its very easy touse.
highly recomend getting a "t square" straight edge to make the perfect cuts
The other option is to adjust the blade depth so you're cutting deeper into the sacrificial mat below the one you actually want to cut. That way if the blade pushes up a bit it might not matter. But then you're cutting through more material and the tool becomes harder to push. Either way, you're exerting a lot of pressure and it's taxing on fingers and wrists.
So I went to the hardware store and found some #3 machine screws that fit the two pre-drilled holes to either side of the cutting blade. I added small washers and wrapped some thick fishing line I had laying around once under the washer, tightened it down, then ran the line around the black plastic such that pulling it tight pulled the blade down. Screwing the line down on the other side keeps the blade pulled down and the cutter is much easier to use. I still wouldn't say it's like butter as another reviewer said, but it doesn't hurt my thumb.Read more ›

It works well for thinner stock matte and also for straight forward cuts otherwise it would be difficult to get clean cuts if you're looking to get into detailed crevicesPublished 1 month ago by Dennis-Hien N.

I needed my mats to have a beveled edge. Not with this! I have better luck getting a beveled edge by hand with an exacto knife. It can't adjust to actually bevel it. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
Simple design and usage. Good quality materials.
We practice half hour with some pieces of mat before cutting the real one. Once we did it, it was perfect. Read more
Great cutter for the price. It's my first cutter, but I've saved so much on photo matting already, creating poster-sized mats with this. Read morePublished 3 months ago by AKim

I bought this cutter at A C Moore. The problem is the design. the blade is on the outside of the straight edge so the edge cannot keep you lined up evenly for the cut. It wobbles. Read morePublished 3 months ago by nonesuch
