    I believe it is an Alto's quilt cut. I have the first version.
    I bought mine more than several years ago at a Woodworking show in columbus Ohio.

    I would use it more but have no space for it right now.

    Enjoy.

    Its a Alto quilt cut 2. For cutting fabric in strips triangle diamond all kinds of shapes. I got tired of trying to hold a long ruler straight and cut strips or angles. Talk to some really nice Ladies on here and then reviewed the Alto website & ordered it. Now to go play !!!!!!

    I just watched the cd and I am in LOVE. My hands will not hurt near as much (worked on a computer for 10hrs a day for 17 of my 25ys @ my last job b-4 I retired) Now I can cut any design I want in about 1/8 of the time. My DH said if it will help your hands go for it. So he ordered it for me. You ladies were right it is Fantastic. Got to go play more just wanted to update b-4 I disappear. Thank You for all the GREAT ADVICE.

    I have that. It is great, when cutting you almost need a third hand to steady the far end of the ruler. I haven't tried much fancy cutting yet. I think it was worth the investment.

    Oh how lucky you are. I hav been drooling over that same thing for over 2 years now. Someday, when my ship comes in, IF I'm not at the Airport, maybe I will be able to get me one.
    Have Fun.
