Default Is the wheel guide worth buying?

Just wondering.

I love it. It's a great straight edge for anything you are doing. I wouldn't wheel without it. It can be configured into a right angle. the best 10 bucks I've spent in a long time.

I have used it at parties and at stamp camps and I have really liked it but just never bought it, then I was going through last years catalog and it says that you can use the edge of the trimmer (the grey and orange one from last year) as a guide for the wheels, I tried it and it worked just as well. it is not see through so you have to line it up, but it is easy. Now if you are wanting it to do corners and such then I say go for it but I have only ever wanted it to make straight wheel lines so the trimmer works fine for me.

I love it. Great tool and really worth having if you do a lot of wheeling.

I have always been wheel challenged and as a demo I have avoided using wheels for workshops because I was so bad at it. Now I love the wheels and am not afraid to use those darned things.

I say if you are wheel challenged, go for it. It's worth it.

You bet! I even read somewhere on SCS that someone was going to buy another one to make a really long guide for wrapping paper. I think it's a great price....a much better deal than the Tearing Edge for $20!

YES YES YES - I am so challenged for anything to be straight and this is great. I really need the see through-ness of it. I tried using the edge of other things, but it was never perfect. For $10 I say Keep On Wheelin'

Me, too! Now I love to demostrate Wheels because of the guide.

I absolutely love mine. Last Saturday I had a stamp camp and two projects used wheels. I was able to split the wheel guide and use one half at each table.

It's wonderful for those of us who are wheel challenged!

I don't have one but would like to but it. From reading the threads on SCS I see it gets good reviews. I have my catalog with me today. I can't find it. Do you know what page it is on?

I absolutely love my wheel guide! My girlfriend thought it was a dumb thing to buy, but after she used mine she thought it was great too!
I definately think it is a wonderful value for your money!!!

Just posted this on another site so thought I’d share it here also.
I have a thick ruler style stamp positioner that works just great as a wheel guide. Michael’s carries the style I’m talking about, clear and a little less than half inch thick. I found some anti slide rubber dots at Michael’s on clearance and put them on the bottom to prevent sliding but any type of rubber will work even from your stamp sets with double sided tape.
It works great for anything up to nine inches long. I was using it long before the wheel guide was ever thought of. I’m all for making items work double duty and this fits the category.

I *was* totally wheel challenged.....but now my wheelin' looks good!

I would highly recommend it. At least 2 of my regular customers bought one after demo'ing it.

Rubber scraps from mounting stamps work really well on the bottom of a see thru ruler - I did this and it's great. It doesn't fold or turn to do corners, but it ddoes the straight lint great and you can see thru it!

I thought it was stupid and wasn't going to get it. I ended up getting it with hostess dollars just to try it and figured I could trade it away if i hated it.
I LOVE IT!! I'm wondering how I lived without it for so long. I say get it!

YES! My customers are wheel challenged & even though I demo'd how to use the edge of the paper cutter, they still couldn't do it. As soon as they saw the new wheel guide, they HAD to have it & love it! I even made it my birthday special at my last WS! It increased my sales to make it a hostess order (only 2 guests)!

don't have one, but plan too (just so many other things keep popping up like salebration, and now the March specials) but just thinking, couldn't you use it like the stampamajig?

I love it, because now I can finally roll those roller stamps straight. I love the way it comes apart and pops back together for easy storage and for making the right angle for the borders. It's a great tool. Personally for $9.95 you get more for your money with this tool than you do the Tearing Edge tool. I hate that I spent $19.95 on it.

I got my wheel guide at my party. I finally broke out the wheels to do my very first swap and of course I thought now is the time for the wheel guide. I thought this is awesome look how nice and neat my stuff is turning out, so I definately think it is awesome and a must. I recommended it to all my friends
