WTB - Mat Cutter

I would like to try and make my own photo mounts and am therefore looking for a mat cutter. I have read on previous threads that the Logan models are good and I am probably looking at one of the 'Team' series as a relatively inexpensive starting point.

Before I buy though, I thought I would check if any members have a cutter they no longer require and wish to sell?

Many Thanks.

Re: WTB - Mat Cutter

We have the 450 intermediate (actually an older model.. that is the current equivalent) which is very good and easy to use

I would recommend one of this range without hesitation as spares are stored in most good art shops and the build quality is good

I haven't done so, but I think I would find the team edge a lot harder to use as the model we have makes it much easier to line up square corners (at least that's the sales pitch)

regards
Andy

Thanks for your reply and helpful information Andy. As I am not producing too many prints at the moment I was hoping to have a go at making a few mounts to see how I got on - hence aiming for one of the cheaper models initially. This thread was just a long shot to see if anybody had a cutter they are not getting the use of (as is my worry and reticence to spend too much).

Re: WTB - Mat Cutter

I have got a quantity of mounting card, if you ever come this far south? Too awkward to post, yours if you want to collect.

Really kind offer Stephen - thank you.

Usually only passing through Edinburgh on way South but if I am ever out towards Haddington I will let you know and take up your offer if still available.
