    450-1: 40" Artist Elite Mat Cutter is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 47.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 450-1: 40 Artist Elite Mat Cutter by Lo I used this to cut 15 sheets of 32x40 mat board down to mattes for my 13x19 prints. You can't really find mattes for this size of print, so it was necessary to cut my own, but it also saved me a bunch even if you could find them because once I cut the 13x19 windows out of the 18x24 frames I was able to make more mattes out of the window for 8.5x11 prints in 11x14 frames. With 15 full sheets I was able to almost fill a century portfolio box for each size...20x24 (18x24 mattes with 13x19 prints-no box to fit that size), 11x14 box with 8.5x11 prints, and 8x10 box with 5x7 prints. Probably not professional grade cutter but works well enough for me.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inadequate for squaring mat board My expectations were probably inappropriate but the Logan Graphics web site says this has a mat squaring mechanism. This cutter is inadequate to cut 32 X 40 mat board down to size. The squaring arm that extends to the right at the bottom of the board has significant play at the right end. I bought a 2'X4 piece of MDF particle board and a metal measuring ruler and clamped the mat cutter and the ruler down to the work table with C clamps to assure a square cut. Then I got along fine. The product does an excellent job of cutting the opening in mats and it does a good job of trimming two or three inches off a mat that you know to be square. I got a decent product for the money. I notice that the Logan video clip on how to square mat board uses one of their more expensive products.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much like the - Most Liked Negative Review Did something similar with a 1x3x24 piece of pine and basically attached it permanently to the front, left side perpendicular to the 40 with of the Cutter. I then attached a 1/2x1/2x24 piece of aluminum angle stock aligned with the metal, left side, guide bar on the back of the board to provide me with a 24 left side stop/guide of the same thickness as the cutter's base-board. Not pretty but functions wonderfully and now I can cut almost any size with very accurate cuts. Sometimes, to prevent sag of larger pieces I slip a piece of 1x(thickness) under the sheet good being for added support. As far as cutting and such . . . love the 450-1, has helped me tremendously and saved me money in the over-all cost of things, especially for the price. Jimmy

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a terrific mat cutter My husband and I are amateur photographers and wanted to be able to creatively mat and frame our work - and we change our pictures often. This is a well-made, quality piece of equipment that is easy to use (it also comes with a great how-to DVD). You get professional quality very easily and quickly. A real plus is it can handle 40 sheets of mat board, which is fantastic if you want to work with larger pieces of art. So far, I haven't found anything I don't like about it. I would highly recommend the Logan 450-1 Artist Elite to anyone who wants to do their own mat cutting.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but cant cut 8 ply mats This equipment makes making mat a breeze. However, should have spent the extra $ for the 750 model. The mat cutter in this model can only cut 4 ply mat and the rest/bar used to keep the mat edge at 90 deg to the cut is very small and not as usefull compared to the 750 model. The straight cutter is plastic and feels cheap and out of place with the rest of the gear. Other than the fact that I cannot do 8 ply mats,still reasonnably happy with the equipment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 450-1: 40 Artist Elite Mat Cutter Takes some getting use to as I am use to cutting from right to left not top to bottom. The cutter is pulled toward your body. Never have I used a razor knife where you pull it to you. So it has taken some time to reajust. I did try to order a different knife with the board but more expense and the other knife did not come with the bearings that this packaged cutter had, so I bit the bullet and am getting use to it. I have not cut myself so far. The other problem is that the 40 board has to hang off my table since it has to be placed perpendicular to you. Akward.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product did not hold up well This product worked well for a week or so, then problems began. First, the starting pin on the bevelled mat cutter malfunctioned and could not be fixed, forcing me to use a second hand to hold it in place at the start and finish of each cut, and wasting a couple of boards while I learned how to deal with it. Now, after not using the cutter for a month or so, I realize that the underlying board has warped and the cutting guide has developed a very light bow in the middle. Between the two very mild warps, when pressed together there is about an eighth of an inch of curvature in the cutting guide. I will contact the company and hope they will send a replacement.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So simple I can do it. First off it is a great product. Why not 4 stars? Because I feel 5 stars should be reserved for a product that is absolutely stellar. I bought the product so that I could create my own custom mats for my photography. Store mats are generally confined to a specific size limiting my ability to crop as I would like. This cutter gives me the flexibility. Right out of the box it was square but it is simple to re-square and plumb if that should become necessary. Spot-on! The guideline mark on the cutter is perfect - you stop when the line crosses the adjoining mark. I don't have a complaint and at the price I wouldn't even if I did. Simple to use, affordable and accurate. It is a winner!
