Which Mount Cutter ?

OK, I've decided to bite the bullet & buy a mount cutter. I'm lazy, so want something that makes the job easy. Currently using 20" x 16" mounts, but may need to go bigger I assume their is a size point where prices rocket

Anyone advise ??

Re: Which Mount Cutter ?

Good question Dave, I'm thinking of buying one myself, so this thread will be of much help!

Re: Which Mount Cutter ?

I don't have one so this is secondhand advice, but whenever anyone asks for a recommendation the brand that always comes up is Longridge. They do a wide range depend on what size and facilities you need, and they get very good reviews.

I think this is the one Whipspeed uses - she rates it highly.

Re: Which Mount Cutter ?

I use the Longridge Duo cutter which does both bevel on straight cuts. I found it extremely easy to use and I didn't even watch the instructional DVD that came with it (what do you expect, i'm a bloke etc...)

Got mine for a bargain £70 off flea-bay and with mount board available for £3.50 a sheet (A1) it will pay for itself soon enough as I was paying £5 per 20x16" board with an aperture from the local 'framer'

Get one Dave, you won't regret it!

Re: Which Mount Cutter ?

I use a MAPED 45 degree cutter for the frame and a DAHLE 554 guilotine for cutting up the boards. They work fine for me and I have had them for many years. However, I would not claim they were better than other makes as I have not used other makes.

Re: Which Mount Cutter ?

Hi there. Just wanted to add my two pennyworth. I invested in the Longbridge Duo mount cutting system in order to mount 30 pictures for my City & Guilds course. Boy, was I glad I'd got it! Once I got the hang of it I was like a little production line - mounts of all colours, shapes and sizes were no problem.

I'd really recommend it. The only caveat is that I found it easier to cut the board to size simply using a steel rule and sharp Stanley knife rather than the system. But the bevel cutting was perfect every time using the Duo system, and the clever device they include to measure how far you want your bevel from your edges saves loads of time and calculations.

Good luck!

Re: Which Mount Cutter ?

Ended up buying the Longridge Duo Plus, as only £28 more than normal Duo & you never know when you want that extra 9" for the mount opening Ended up using this guy, as way cheaper than elsewhere :- eBay UK Shop - kee jet photo paper and ink: Photo Inkjet Paper

Re: Which Mount Cutter ?

It might be worth asking at camera club if anyone wants to join in buying the mount board Dave, you can get it much cheaper by bulk buying. I think our lot get it from here
