    Watch those fingers!
    Yipes!

    But, I know that thousands of miles of cuts are done everyday with that kind of cutter.

    I used to have 5" diameter Eastman that would do a 2" lay of fabric in one pass - but it only liked to do straight lines.

    My thoughts exactly. I know this is clearly someone who does this day in and day out, but I would not have my fingers anywhere near that thing. Very cool in any event.

    How does that cutter work, is it an oscillating blade?

    Wow, interesting gadget! Thanks for that.

    And I'm still not getting my fingers near that blade!
