I have the Olfa 17" & 12" and use them all the time! I also bought both sizes for my DM & DS and they thank me all the time! We don't know how we ever did without them! What a breeze to use when squaring up blocks! They are worth every penny I spent on them!!

I attached pictures just to share how wonderful he is. There is a handle to carry it, and mom made protective bags so we could take them to quilting retreats!
I love that idea!! Maybe my DH will make one for me. :)

I love my Brooklyn Revolver and use it constantly. Surface very chewed up; have been rubbing it with a pan scrubber (someone on the Board's suggestion) which has helped some.
Pat Yamin isn't selling them right now, says it's become too expensive to have them made.
