I was given a the economy version years ago but found it took more time to create larger mats. This mat cutter is all you need, unless you want to cut glass. The cutting square works beautiful once you check the square. Just use a wood shim to set square and voila, you are in business. Took me only 10 minutes to set up. Mats come out fantastic.
I was reluctant to cut my on mats as I had heard how difficult it was to get consistently good results. My experience with the Logan Simplex mat cutter has been excellent and the mat cutter is easy to use.
I have been interested in this type of mat cutter for a long time. Guess my expectations were quite high. So far I have not been disappointed! Shipping was fast and the cutter arrived in excellent shape. There were a few items to assembly but assembly went quickly and easily. The markings on where to start and stop the actual are good guidelines but just guidelines. I chose to cut some mats using scrap material before I attempted a production cut. And I was quickly able to see exactly where to start and stop my cuts to prevent overcuts. I am a Photographer and do custom framing for my work and for items people give me to frame. This item will provide years of use to make quality mats quickly and easily. Definitely woudl recommend to a friend. I have no cons yet, the quality and capabilities with this cutter are excellent and I don't see anything missing based on the price.
