SPFG, Supreme Picture Framing God
Reread the post. The last comments you make were my first explanation.I started with this post because it is not true! Jeff, I don't know where you picked up that information but I managed a Hobby Lobby store in Carbondale, IL and I can personally vouch for the fact that we DID have a Wizard inhouse and we DID cut our mats either with the Wizard or with a manual 60" C&H Advantage Pro.
FINALLY!! Someone with a common sense approach and an answer that shows some sensible rationale and thought process to her answer!!! Shayla, I applaud you on your down to earth assessment of this mess and your rational approach to offering some suggestions that aren't judgemental.
Now, some suggestions gleaned from my experiences as a professional framer.
- I wonder why nobody has mentioned such basic things to check as how often the mat blade has been changed???
- When was the last time that the mat cutter was checked, cleaned, and accurately calibrated?
- How are the matcutter head bushings? Are they worn, sloppy, or is there any other movement in the cutter head as it slides across the guide bar?
YOU ARE RIGHT THAT THE HL YOU WORKED AT HAD ONE. THAT DOES NOT MAKE IT THE RULE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
