Took The Missus to the mall yesterday (just about the only way I get any exercise in the winter up here). We ducked into Archivers so she could look at the papers, and I was hoping to find a metal ruler. I found one, and even more.... BasicGrey Magnetc Precision Mat Kit Includes one 15"x15" cutting mat, one 18" ruler and 8 magnetic tacks. The ruler has a thin flexi-magnet on the back that grabs the mat, but not so hard that it can't be adjusted. It does leave a small gap between the mat and the ruler edge, but flip the ruler over, and it's not much thicker tham card stock. The magetic tacks (bootom left of the pic) are very strong! I don't really have a use for them while modelling, so they are stuck to the fridge right now. The mat if fairly soft, which makes scoring much easier (for me). All in all, I'd say it is $25.00 well spent, and would recommend it to anyone who is ready for a new cutting mat.
