    Momala,
    The little screw go into a piece of some kind of hard plastic material. You don't tighten the screws real tight, so I think it will last just fine. I haven't used mine that much, but I haven't had any problems so far. I use my Accuquilt cutter for the long strips, then use the Adj. locking ruler to cut into Triangles once I have sewing them together. Unless you are cutting lots of different sizes, you may not even move the adj. screw part.
    I don't know if any of you have the o"lipfa ruler. It works about like that except you can move the adj. stop part.
    Something else a person can do if you are wanting the adj part stop. Take a ruler that you are using, get double sticky tape and tape a piece of mole for the stop. Then you just butt the ruler to the fabric. The sticky tape is very temp, but it does work.

    YOU DON'T NEED THEM!!! (there, did that help?) I'm not one to talk as I, too LOVE gadgets, but they do tend to pile up in my quilting room. Ask yourself one more time "do I really need this?"

    I may not want to try these rulers but I'm glad others do. I may change my mind based on their review of them and if the reviews intrigue me I'll buy some and give them a try. I don't buy new quilting items based on my need, that's would be being stingy to myself.
    Got fabric?

    These were invented by an Austrailan and are popular here

    My most favorite and most used ruler is the Creative Grid 2 1/2" x 6 1/2". Love that ruler and it gets used every day.

    Those rulers would require me to think too much!

    I am a gadget person myself and usually buy something that promises it will help me cut better. I am still toying with the idea of buying the Martelli Strip Ruler, looked for it at the Somerset Quilt show beginning of this month, but no one had it. I would like to try it out before I spend $80 + dollars on one ruler.

    Consider yourself talked out of it. Seems like alot of $$ to part with for something that you probably already have just not painted black..
    Lack of planning on your part does NOT nessessitate an emergency on my part.

    I have the June Taylor cutting mat and I very seldom use it. I would not spend money on these. Would rather spend money on nice fabric. But to each his own.
