In the world of mat cutters, Logan cutters are at the bottom of the pile. Cheap but if you only do a couple at a time, then I guess it's good enough. For those who are saying that theirs is a really good cutter and works great, you only think that way because you haven't used one of the better ones yet.
My Escort was a really good car that worked just fine and I was happy enough with it. Then I bought my first Volvo and, wow!! Then I bought my first Mercedes and wow!!
See how that works?
The next rung up the ladder are the C&H and Fletcher cutters. Both are top rung cutters that are in many framing stores and can be used for decades of consistent work. I still have mine in here in case the CMC goes down and I still need to cut a mat and can't wait for replacement parts to come in.
For wall mounted cutters, the Esterly manual cutter like Bill A. uses is great for consistent mats and for production cutting. These also have a cutter at the right end of the machine for cutting the mat blanks, foam core and for cutting glass. Very handy for someone doing all of their framing. This is the second machine I had.
Then you have the big guys... the computerized mat cutters.
These are not cheap but are definitely worth every penny if you need to do more intricate cuts or mats with multiple openings. I can sit down and cut out mats for 30 jobs in less than an hour or so with every one a different design. The nice thing about a CMC is that once you have set up your mat cut, you can save it off so whenever you need to redo a mat for a certain image, you just reopen that file and the cutter is ready to go to make the same cut as before. Really nice when you actually are selling your work.
It all depends on 2 things... how much work you have to do, and how much money you want to spend.
