I've been doing Rhinestone designs for about 6 months now, and have been struggling with using a couple different higher end cutters. I've never been able to get the templates cut cleanly which resulted in hours of picking little left over dots out of holes. Then trying to scrap them of the back of the template material after they fall and cling to it. I like to do large designs, 800 to 2000 stone size. It's been a nightmare. Recently I purchased the Groove E from you and WOW. Had a little problem setting up because I had a port problem (which was easily remedied thanks to your site). I just cut 5 templates with approximately 800 stones each. I know most won't believe it, but the Groove e cut the holes so cleanly that each and every one of the dots came off on the mat. On every template!!!! I couldn't believe it. I've done more in two days with this economical Groove e than I've done in the six months. I'm really glad I've found this site, this cutter, and most of all you. The support is terrific. Saves a lot of time, and we all know that time is money. Kudos to you.
