Helmut,

Thank you for posting this.

I keep looking at the various paper cutting machines,
and wonder about their true usefulness in the hobby.

I've read everything from how wonderful,
to how utterly useless they are.

The macro shots of the windows say,
they are at least as good, as what I can accomplish by hand.

Tom

They'll show their virtues e.g. when you have to make 20+ identical frames.

Depending on the material and dimensions you use,
the results can be even more pleasing.

Some thin (0.2mm) fine-grain paper on a freshly prepared cutting-mat,
will give very crisp cutouts.

The mat's grip matters much, especially when cutting fine structures.

An in-depth guide to the cutters' use can be found  here
