Default Revolving Cutting Mats

Are these cutting mats worth the cost? I have looked at them a long time and wondered if you had any feedback. Thanks so much

I have one and use it frequently when I am squaring up smaller blocks. I believe the cost is worth it - depending on what you do

I have 2 sizes and love them both. Definately worth the money.

I like them, but they're very limiting in size, so you will usually need a larger mat on hand as well. If you already have a smaller mat, there's nothing stopping you from cutting & rotating the mat without the actual "mechanism".

I have one, bought it because it seemed like a must-have, but have used it very seldom. I think it very much depends on what kind of cutting you're doing. On a future project I might use it a lot...

I use mine quite a bit - a person has to use a 40% off coupon.

I have a small one and like it alot. I've thought about purchasing the larger one, but haven't done it yet.

I enjoy using the smaller one that I have for cutting odd angles and squaring blocks.
