Last weekend I attended the Mayne Framing Supply 30th anniversary open house. In the lobby was an old mat cutter from 1896 that Larry Mayne found at an old office supply company. It was nailed to a counter and the owner claimed it still cut great mats which Larry doubted. I have never seen a mat cutter of this age and thought that cut mats before the days of C&H, Logan etc. were cut by hand. I guess the need to cut mats commercially in volume is older than I thought. Please enjoy and comment.
