To solve the problem of getting top to stay onto bottom while still rotating smoothly! Get a mouse pad that does not have any foam on it, can be made of rubber or harder material. Take a paper rubbing of the opening hole on the bottom black square. Cut out the paper pattern, use the pattern to cut out circles from the mouse pad. I used a thin pad from Dell, Gorilla Super Glue. Glue 2-3 circles of pad to metal part under top. I used tthree circles for mine
I did enjoy this mat. It is a good size and the quality was very good for the price. Fiskars is a good brand.
I love this product; wish I had purchased it sooner. I have no problem with the top staying in the bottom. It may be that I spin it carefully and cut straight down rather than on an angle.
I have hte 14" rotating mat - & it's terrific for swauring off pieces. It's easy to use & compact enough to bring with me to class.
I'm really enjoying this! I agree w/the others that the bottom should be thicker so the disc can be thicker as well, but I LOVE the fact that it's not GREEN! I use mostly darker fabrics, and they show up sooo much better on the light color!
I have no problem with this mat....I have the 6" size and have no problem with it.
Don't waste your money. Will not rotate without falling apart. I will definitely be returning this product on my next trip to town.
This product isn't that bad. Only problem is the bottom of it needs to be thicker so it can fit into the circle more steadily when rotating. It stills saves me time on cutting but only thing is if you want to rotate it without it falling out of the circle you have to start at the top corner and then rotate.
