    Just saw an ad on TV for this power tool at Lowe's for all the different items it will cut, which included fabric!

    Wow! Cuts through 15 layers of cotton. Very interesting, but also very expensive!

    I won't be buying it.
    Looks chunky to hold on to.
    And how long would the blade last for fabric cutting?
    I'd bet you'd be changing the blades just as often as the rotary cutter blades.
    I'm sorry, but it looks like a "Tim the Toolman" approach - make it bigger with more power!

    if the blade is 45 or 60 mm, they could be a source for rotary blades, like Harbor Freight.

    If you read the reviews on this it will tell you that it's not that great on cutting fabrics. Nice tool for other things thought.
