I did notice that some very thick fabric and duplex mats could not be cut all the way through with the 4 ply setting. These mats are closer to an 6 ply thickness - either use another handheld cutter, or simply cut the rest of the way through on the 8 ply setting. Be sure to cut through your original line, or you will have a shredded bevel.
8 ply mats are a beast, you WILL have to use steady, forceful pressure to get all the way through (especially on alpha-cellulose mats, rag is much softer). Probably not good for anyone with wrist problems or arthritis.
I'm purchasing another one for home use and personal projects!
So today my new Logan 5000 cutter arrives and it IS NOT the same as the one I've been looking at all this time. First, this one has no light for blade engagement. What? Not too big a deal, but still disconcerting. Then, the blade carrier is NOT the double sided, easy switch, 4-ply / 8-ply design, which was pretty much the feature I was interested in for this cutter. The carrier on this model is still magnetic (the blade sticks to the carrier and locks into the cutter body with a screw) but it's only one sided and holds only one blade. It has an adjustment screw to set the blade depth instead of the dual blade carrier described on the "regular" Logan 5000. The 5000 mat cutter on the Logan site says you should use only the 270 double bevel blades, so I bought a big pack of 270s. This Model 5000 says to only use the single bevel 271 blades! At least for 8-ply mats.
The instructions and packaging say this is an "8-Ply Mat Cutter" and there is no mention on the box, or anywhere in the meager instruction sheet about cutting 4-ply mats, which is my primary use, with only the occasional 8-ply. This cutter isn't what I expected. Apparently there are several different variations of the Logan 5000 Model cutters out there, or at least several variations of the same cutter. Maybe this one was intended for a different market? I don't know, but I'm at least a little disappointed.
So for all that, I inserted a 270 double bevel blade in the cutter and set the depth as best I could (not as easy as you'd think to do) for a 4-ply mat. The cutter works as well as my original 2000 cutter that came with my Logan 301 so I guess I'll keep the new mat cutter anyway. To me, it's more trouble than it worth to return, wait for funds and then risk getting the same thing when I reorder. I guess it'll be okay in the end, but buyer beware! You might not get what you expect if you order this cutter!
