Today's tool is brought to you by Simplicity.
It's the versatile Rotary Cutting Machine!
There are different models but this one below is the basic model.
CLICK HERE to view a video by the great folks of SIMPLICITY to see how it works.
It cuts strips of fabric or paper from 3/8" to 2 3/4". An adjustable guide bar can be moved to determine the cut width. Cutting is accomplished by the pressure between the blade and the roller underneath. The machine comes with a polarized plug/foot pedal combination. A flat head screw driver and a phillips head screw driver are required to replace blades and tighten pressure for cutting.
* Easy to use
* Foot pedal included
* Cuts straight and pinked edges
* Adjustable guide for cutting strips 1/2" - 2-1/2" wide
* Includes 2 blades for fabric and paper cutting
* Blades are removable
I thought it was important to note that you could use this to cut PAPER too!
That makes this of great use to paper crafters as well as quilters & sewers.
I noticed that Wal-mart carried it online for $69.99 for the model shown above. I am sure you could find varied prices at other online retailers.
Now if they could only come out with an automated or digital paper trimmer...
Have a good day!
