Yup, I sure do. In the beginning I would occasionally hit the ruler with
the rotary blade, very bad. Never broke one but it does wear the blade.
But I would say no more then cutting through leather or thick denim or
something. And given that I can get a 20 pack of blades pretty cheap now
a days I don't worry about it. I think though that was more of a
learning curve on the rotary cutter. Learning to keep your wrist at the
proper angel and such. And not using so much force that I was trying to
cut through the mat and table at the same time. Those rulers have helped
so much even if I had to replace the blade for every quilt I would still
consider it worth it. No way are you going to get me to part with them.
