Disapointing

Date: 2022-01-04

I competed in print competitions for more than a decade, using two less expensive models of Logan mat cutters. When this model came up at a substantially reduced price on Deal Zone, I decided to buy it, since it offered a couple of features that were lacking on my less expensive models. When it came I took it from the box and assembled it. I was unimpressed with their quality. I concluded that they would probably not make a significant difference in my ability to cut mats. Because of Covid 19, my camera club has not been having competitions, and I have thus far had no occasion to actually cut a mat since I received the cutter. Thus, my rating is base only upon my educated assessment of how useful those additional features are likely to be to me. (These days, the new cutter takes up space with my other two but provides me no benefit for having purchased it.)

Fun and practical tool

Easy to assemble and use. Took a couple trial runs but my cuts and matte windows are turning out great. If you have off fixed frames and photos this kind of machine is a must.i recommend this product.

Great price, does the job

Exactly what I needed to do my own framing and mat cutting. Easy set up, good performance.

Knocked out a double mat the first time using this mat cutter. Excellent training provided by Logan and B&H.

I set it up in about 15 minutes using the provided instructions. My wife produced a perfect mat on the first try. The quality of materials, fit, and finish is commensurate with the price. Be careful with the length scale if you have to move or store the machine.

Not as much of an improvement as I had hoped.

I already owned two Logan mat cutters, which I have used for years matting prints for display and competition. I was hoping this one would be a substantial improvement over my others. While it has a few features that my other cutters lack, examination of it, coupled with my matting experience, caused me to conclude that the added features would not be that useful to me; while they do add to its bulk for storage. Had I not gotten such a good price on it from Deal Zone, I probably would not have bought it. I will keep it to see how I like using it, but I would not recommend it. Someone interested in doing his own matting could save money over the price I paid by purchasing less elaborate cutters offered by Logan Graphics.

Do not let it get wet or even damp

I purchased this mat cutter less than a month ago. Straight out of the box, I ruined a piece of mat board because it does not come squared but they don't tell you that. After I squared it up, it did well. An overhead water line condensated and dripped water on it one night. I found it the next morning and the particle board base had already bubbled up which rendered it unusable. I take full responsibility for the drip but I would have thought it would have been more durable than what it is. In the photo enclosed, see the mat board scrap laying on the table behind it. It received the same amount of water drip and only stained the mat board. I contacted Logan and for $58.50 + $22.00 shipping, they will send me another cheap particle board base. You read that shipping cost correctly. I think I will just sand the bubbles down and keep it. That should give me plenty of opportunities to show other how well made and durable it is.

question

Is this mat cutter capable of cutting mats thicker than 4 ply?
Asked by: Stephen D.
Yes... first, the straight cutter is capable of up to and slightly beyond the 3/16 foam core boards and the angled mat cutter can be set for the standard 4ply and extended to deeper cuts simply by adjusting the lock screw and extending the blade as far as you need. Of course you don't want to go but a bit beyond what you are cutting to save on the blade and the slip sheet. Hope this helps.
