The 32-Inch Compact Elite Mat Cutter from Logan is designed to cut mats of any length. Most mat cutters have 2 closed ends, limiting the size of the mat boards they can cut. With Logan's open-ended guide rail, you can cut mats of any size. The parallel mat guide lets you set your own border widths, ranging from 0.75" (1.9 cm) to 4.5" (11.4 cm).
The included Straight Cutter Elite and the hinged guide rail make accurate cutting easier. Even if you have never cut your own mat before, Logan's complimentary instructional DVD and illustrated guide make cutting mats easy.

The LG350-1 mat cutter was very easy to assemble and use. For my 1st use, I had to cut two mats of different colors both with two inner window cuts. Everything worked very well. It took me a long time because, being my 1st cut, I was extra careful. The provided stops were essential. Only minor issue I noticed is that at the end of the straight cuts, it rips a bit of the edge but since this part is usually hidden by the picture frame, I am not too concerned. The Adorama folks were very helpful in answering my questions before the purchase and helping me through the purchasing process. Delivery was prompt. The box was banged a bit and the item had a minor chip on a back corner.
Setup was quick. You need to work at getting the cutting blade depth adjusted properly and the squaring arm really square with the cutter guide. Baseboard flexes when cutting if not on a completely flat surface. Once these things are set up correctly, it shines. Really easy to cut offset and double/tripple mats.
Great product and very easy to use. It is so well worth the investment.
