Hi, today I have a grievance. I got an Easy Cutter Deluxe for my birthday last month after months of agonising and studying the different types, emailing sellers to see if they ship to Australia (most don't) and reading woodworking forums for opinions. I did have reservations about the blade shape giving a square cut, but decided either it would adjusted so one side cut square or I was being too picky and any slant would be invisible. Everyone else raved about them so they must be good! Finally I opened it and was able to have a play and my reservations were confirmed.
What am I doing wrong? Why does everyone else not have this problem? (actually the crushing was mentioned on one woodworking forum, but not the slanted cut.)
Note the blade shape - essential for a sharp edge and strength, but the tapering is causing my problem.
More positively Spring is here so I will leave you with some garden pics please ignore the giant weed in one - it has spikes and every time I see it I am not up to wrestling with a spiky weed!
