    I don't but from what I've read on here most people that spent the money on it wish they hadn't. So far, I haven't read where anyone liked them. You are talking about that strip cutter thing right? That's what I'm talking about.

    I personally like the June Taylor shape cutters. I can cut strips all day long and accurately.

    I have one and I hate it. Quite a few others that have posted here hate it also. There were a couple of folks that liked it but not very many. I believe they invested in the table that was made for it. For my money--don't buy it--I wish I hadn't. It's not accurate enough and doesn't cut all the way through.

    Oh boy. I'm glad you asked that question. I was thinking about asking for this for my b'day. Don't think I will after the response.

    Ask for a June Taylor Shape Cutter. It's easy and accurate and cheaper!

    How easy? I'm technologically challenged.

    It is a plastic "mat" with slits cut in it at regular intervals. All you do is line up a line on the bottom and run your rotary cutter along the slits. See link.

    Hmmmm ... or maybe I'll need a workshop. Thank you!
