I am sorry kmk. Hugs to you and your children. Can you try to save up another $100 for a Zing? I think that would be your best cutter for you. You already use MTC. I could recommend other cutters that might fall in a cheaper range than the Zing. You won't have the stress of learning a new software. KNK has lots of videos. Andy has lots of KNK videos too on the MTC forum. The girls over at the MTC forum might know where you can get a cheaper Zing too. The Zing cuts at 750 gsm. You will be able to cut through chipboard like butter with that kind of pressure. Zing is the official cutter for MTC so that's why I recommend it. Most of the cutters on the market do work with MTC. I think with the Zing easing into it will be easier.
