i have been eyeing the cutter's mate. i currently have the morton setup from years back. in a workshop photo (now i can't find the photo to reference), i noticed the cutter's mate along side the morton cutting bar/fence. is it possible to use them together? i'd like to use the existing cutting bar/fence as the stationary straight ruler with the cutter's mate. thanks.

Margaret;
I have both pcs and see no reason you can't use them together. I haven't tried to use the cutters mate for cutting along the straight edge of the Morton myself yet, but IMHO I'm sure there wouldn't be any problems with doing it.
The only thing I found was the cutter mate frame gets in the way when cutting larger pcs of glass, had to take it off the table top and use hand cutter.

thanks wes. i wish i had the transit means (car) to get the larger sheets of glass from glass supply house to my house, so i usually have them cut them down if i need a lot of a particular type glass anyway. only do for gift giving.

ok thanks...i'll keep saving those pennies and maybe i'll catch a great sale.

I understand that it is much easier to use with Morton System. I have a cutters mate for sale. I would like $209 plus actual shipping costs. It is NIB not even removed from box to look at it. I found a great deal on a new one and then I found a greater deal on a used one. So I am going to end up with 2. If you are interested let me know.
