    This is serious, have spent all day in emergency with a side of my finger cut in a neat edge. Be careful.

    Better yet go to the local electric supply store and buy some "cut gloves"...cheaper than ordering on line from various quilting shops plus these come in more comfortable sizes rather than one size giant cut glove! No more cutting my fingers now!

    Is this a joke? Nothing to do with rotary cutters, a cartoon commercial.
