Best Uses: Work

The Logan 650 is a prosummer grade mat maker and board cutter. The particular model we purchased is very accurate, and as such, easy to use. In making the decision to purchase this model over other more expensive models by various manufactures and Logan, we noted that most of the videos on Youtube about general mat cutting (not featuring a particular model of cutter) had the instructor/host using a 650. It seems to have been the standard until a business could upgrade to the computer controller cutters. It was also the most frequent model of cutter for the schools we checked that had art programs. Our own experience has been very satisfying with this tool. We have yet to mark up a mat, using the stops exclusively. Every mat has turned out perfect.
There is a small learning curve with cutting mat to length but it does this function well also.
Buy what you need but we still could not justify the extra expense of other cutters compared to the Logan 650 Framer’s Edge Mat Cutter.
