    I have a couple of them in different sizes and I love them. They make cutting strips easy since my hands sometimes wobble with a ruler.

I tried inserting the cutter at the larger opening at the end of the ruler but I never achieved the smooth quick motion I've seen on YouTube and on Alex Anderson show (before she was cancelled). I bought it after seeing one of her guests use it. Maybe I'm too old to start something new LOL
    It might be the rotary cutter you are using. I have an older one that will not work either. I got an Olfa Ergonomic 45 mm Rotary Cutter with a 50% off coupon last year, and it works really great with my June Tailor Shape Cut Ruler.

    jdreamblue,
    I used to have problems, but a friend told me to cut from the selveges to the fold and I haven't seen a wave in a while.

    Incidently, I see where there is one that has 2 1/2" slits -- does anyone have that one?

    I'm convinced!!! it must be me since everyone else seems to love it. Hey, I'm not too old to admit I MIGHT be wrong LOL
    My ruler is the 12" June Taylor, HOWEVER,I'm using a straight Olfa cutter (had it forever, probably the first one they made). I have a couple of others, but I always seem to grab this one.
    I refuse to be the only quilter who can't conquer a square piece of plastic. Gonna pull it out and practice, practice, practice - 'cause I do use a lot of strips LOL
    Thanks ladies, God, I love this site.

    To make it easier to insert my cutter, I just pull the slot open a bit, insert cutter, then let it go back to normal.
    I also make sure I've got a finger on the part right beside where I'm cutting so it doesn't bow when I'm cutting.
    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this ruller.
