A caution for using this bar:
[I use this bar with my Costco purchased, black and silver colored 12" Rotary Cutter, 45mm cutting wheels; original replacement cutting bar number for this cutter is #9582. For a visual reference: a web search reveals that Walmart currently sells that model: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Fiskars-Titanium-10-Sheet-Rotary-Trimmer-Plastic-Base-20-x-13/21387752?srccode=cii_5784816&cpncode=30-192192684-2&adid=1500000000000029469730&veh=cse ]
> One reviewer complains that the bar is a different material than expected, and already has a deep groove in it after a few uses.
> Well, this bar is exactly like the bar that I was replacing, whether or not Fiskars has offered different materials at other times.
<> This bar WILL develop a score mark after just one use, and it will deepen as more use is accumulated. The depth of the score mark will obviously depend upon how much downward pressure you apply while sliding the cutting wheel. This is the way the bar is supposed to work, and why it needs to have its cutting surface periodically renewed - by rotating to a fresh face, or by replacement. In a pinch - you can spend quite a bit of time and sand down the surface for some more life.
<> Here's the issue you should concern yourself with...
When you slide the cutting wheel mechanism to make a cut, the cutting wheel is free to wiggle a bit left and right. The basic issue is that with a casual cutting slide motion, there is nothing that constrains the wheel to move in an exact straight cut - it can wander a bit.
This is a disadvantage of a consumer grade rotary cutter as opposed to a slicing guillotine blade cutter.
> Solution: Especially for your first and earliest cuts on a new cutting bar surface: make sure that you while you slice, press the bottom (cutting) edge of the cutting wheel mechanism into the right side (outer guide edge) of the overhead cutting guide bar. This will force the cutting wheel to follow the straight edge of the guide bar.
The cutting bar will develop its cutting groove - and that groove will be straight and parallel to the guide bar. Once the groove is in place, it will assist in keeping the cutting wheel in that same straight line track - resulting in straight edged cuts.
> Problem: If you do not take care, and develop grooves in the cutting bar which are not straight and parallel to the cutting guide - you will find that for subsequent cuts, the cutting wheel will tend to follow the existing groove path. Pressing the wheel slide against the cutting guide in order to get a straight cut will now be less effective, as the wheel will be fighting to stay in its grooved track.
SO - First: Get the initial cutting track straight - avoid later aggravation.
Later on: always press the blade edge up against the cutting guide as you slide the cutter.
