Great system

I purchased this to help with cutting glass for my workshops, I previously did it all by hand with a ruler, straight edge and lots of sharpie marks. It takes a bit of getting used to, but it's a great system. I've only just got to grips with using the angles, and it makes cutting triangles a breeze. My only regret is not getting the flying beetle at the same time. That's probably going to be my next purchase.

The Cutting System

I bought the system nearly three weeks ago including the cutting surface. I am the first to admit that I m not the best at maths working out angles so I thought this would help. Firstly I was disappointed to find I can't use the 60 x 40 sheets on it so I have had to keep my original strip cutter and rubber mat which I had hoped this would replace so now I have 2 cutting areas instead of the one. There is no cm measure on the ruler so I have had to attach a tape measure with this on it. The stops that hold the glass in place aren't easy to put in and remove so I ve put vaseline on them to stop them sticking. I wish now I d just bought a replacement for my schberscnitt cutter which gave my 15 years service and is less than half the price.

2 things to bear in mind

It'll fit on the Morton grid.
It takes up a lot of space to swing the 'arm' around.

Needs space

Works well on my Morton grid! However, the cutting edge is nearly 2 foot long! So takes up, for me, too much space on my work surface!
