Parts of the cutter are not well made
from Champaign, IL
It is not worth full price at all.The problem is the plastic piece on the bottom of the cutter that determines what angle you cut at.It is flimsy and does not fit onto the cutter firmly. When that piece is placed at the 45 degree angle, it fits more firmly and by being careful decent cuts can be made. But at the 90 degree angle, the cutter wiggles back and forth and is not stable at all. Smooth, vertical cuts are extraordinarily difficult to do with this angle piece.It amazes me to think that Xacto makes such a poor piece of equipment (the angle piece) and people actually pay full price for it!If X-acto redesigns the angle piece, the cutter would probably be very useful. The blade cuts well and the device is easy and comfortable to hold. Making small cuts (without the angle piece installed) that do not need exact alignment works pretty well.As it is, I am going to try to glue a piece onto the cutter so the vertical alignment is precise and the cutter does not shimmy or wobble or change angle depending on how the cutter is held. I bought this specifically to do vertical cuts in foam. I was disappointed in the cheap construction of the angle piece. The cutter itself seems to be well made.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

x-acto Board Cutter
from Oxford, MI
I was very interested in making 45 degree angle cuts but the instructions on the package was minimal and not at all helpful.I had to go to another website to get more information about that type of specific cutting. The product was easy to handle but changing blades was a bit of a task due to the screw that held them in place. I would only recommend this product to someone who was looking for a bargain cutter.

comfortable but inexact
from Hudson Valley
This has a comfortable handle and adjusts depth nicely. However, it has a fatal flaw. The blade lays in an open channel with no guide or retainer to stop it from flexing out when in use, particularly under pressure. As a result, it can (and does) wander out away from the cutting guide when pressure is applied. If there were simply a plastic or metal bridge at the end of the blade channel to stop it from wandering and giving a slightly curved cut, it would be top notch.

Not worth the time
By Lightmeter Studio
from Chicago, IL
How to use the product: Don't! There are instructions but the instructions are short, in 3 languages, and the diagrams are incredibly unclear about what is happening in the picture. Don't bother.Things that are great about it: Nothing, if you want a cutting tool, use a pen knife.Things that aren't so great about it: Oh, everything.

Almost....But Not Quite
from Frankfort, KY
This foam core cutter does help cut the boards at a straight angle and is easy to guide, but it does NOT cut at 9/16"!! It does not cut even close to 8/16 (1/2"). It simply will NOT cut through 1/2 board. It leaves a good 1/8" uncut.
