    Simplicity Rotary Cutter

    Hello,
    I have an opportunity to purchase a Brand new in box simplicity rotary cutter for $45.00
    I am wondering if anyone has this or has used it and what your comments are about it.
    Is it worth it? Are you glad you bought it?
    Or do you not like it at all, and went back to a regular rotary cutter and mat?
    Thanks for the help.

    You may want to do a search on this board about them. I remember reading not a lot of people liked them and returned them or gave them away. I myself would have no use for it. Looks like it only cuts up to 2 3/4. That's pretty small.

    Most quilters don't like it. It does not cut the strips with sufficient accuracy for quilting. Might work for rug hookers.

    For that price I would rather have a June Taylor Shape Cut ruler and a good hand held rotary cutter. It gives a lot more flexibility in how to use it. Not every quilt is made of just strips, and for the amount needed for binding, I'll cut my own thanks.
    I used to be "hot", now it's just "hot flashes!"
