After reading the original post I started to wonder how imperfect my rectangles are because I haven't noticed I have an issue with my fiskars cutter. I just measure down 1/8 to 1/4 from the last mat (ex for a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card I cut the mat to 5 1/2 x 4" and I'll get a 1/8" border on all sides when I glue it down. I don't think I'd buy another tool for this.
