Well the Dahle 507 certainly is much more affordable and gets excellent reviews too. It takes up a lot less space too which is a big consideration for me...decisions, decisions.
Maxine, did you say whether you've had to replace the blade yet? I think it's steel & self sharpening, can cut in either direction. Does it have a cutting mat that needs replacing? An old rotary cutter I have from Cutterpede has this cutting mat that gets too worn to use and is a pain to keep replacing.
