Always pay attention to where you put your fingers!
Those blades are SHARP.
I have a piece of leather about 1/8" thick that I cut thru to sharpen the blade.

I am a lefty, too - I have learned to adapt - but don't always like too. I use a ruler that has a lip on it that holds onto the end of the table that I really like for using with my rotary cutter.

Yes I have one also, but as yet have not used it. I have the later one that cuts up to 6 inches wide. Should be great for quilt borders etc. Shirley

I am left handed too. I just switch the blade over to the other side to make cutting easier for myself. Have fun with you new "Toys"!

How do you switch the blade over?

yvonne123 by yvonne123 23 Jul 2012

you just unscrew the blade and flip it over to L for left

ooops I was thinking of an ordinary hand held cutter. This would not need to be changed. I want one lol but I have a go cutter and have not taken the time to play with that yet.
