    Just to throw this out...

    You can build a mat cutter; I did. Here's a snapshot before I turned the lights on. The jig and both the 90 and 45 degree cutters are aluminum angle.

    It works well....I don't send anything out to be matted anymore.

    The Logan 700 S

    The 700 S? Has anyone experience with
    or opinions of the 700 S? Looks like a sturdy
    scaled down version of some of their other
    medium duty cutters.

    I've no need for very large capacity. I like
    it's solid look + production features. They
    do say it is "specifically" designed for
    photographers. $135 +/-. Dan

    I'd be curious to know why it is more expensive than the larger 301s. 16x20 max seems pretty limiting.

    Medium duty according to Logan and with additional
    features. The 700 S is one of three in the Simplex series.
    Compare at Logan's site. Very well depicted there. Dan

    Take a look at the above. The first is from a listing on The Grumble, a framing site. The second is a business that specializes in framing supplies - USED.

    Get a good Fletcher, C&H, Keenkut or Phaedra Chronomat or similar from the start and work with good equipment. There is no comparison with the good quality gear and Logan low end stuff.

    The difference is like the old monorail Calumet cameras and a Linhof.

    You get what you pay for and the pleasure of using good equipment means it is easier to use, more repeatable and will last.
