See image on the left. I've searched the net for reviews - good or bad - and have come up with nothing. I agree completely that Fletcher machines live up to their reputation for excellence, because I use them in my shop every day, and not because I consult for the company. The only black on it is the clamping bar and cutter head. Let me come back and modify my previous reply. IronPlanet claims no responsibility for the condition or description of this item. Summary - I'd get my stuff cut quicker than you! These bearings will protect the aluminum to steel interfaces from wearing out over the many years of service.
I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience with the Onyx 90 mat cutter. It works very smoothly and for the price difference between the Fletcher and this one, I thought I certainly owed it to myself to give it a try. If you have any real world expeirence with them what is your opinion of them and how do they stack up against other brands like the fletcher 3000 model? When I first stated thinking about purchasing a wall hung glass cutter I thought of purchasing an Onyx 90 strictly because of the price. If the reserve amount is met, the item will automatically be awarded and an invoice will be sent to the winning Buyer. But now I am totally confused. It takes about 1 second to do it.
IronPlanet is providing our customers this tool as a convenience and for informational purposes only. All of them are excellent and work very well. I have bought Chinese made tools that break the first time you use them. It's important to be able to cut at line of sight, in other words,to be able to cut exactly at the edge of a photo that's mounted on foamboard, and get a clean cut. But of I would have probably been happy with the others too.
I installed a Chinese made motor mount on my car once that broke when I lowered the car off of the jacks. I think the price difference between Onyx and any other brand is pretty significant. I suggest evaluating the reviews of the machine and the company that sells it. At 2 of my 3 jobs we have the Fletcher 3000 and at the other job we have the 3100. This item does not include any protection offered by IronClad Assurance.
Maybe consider it a lesson learned and hopefully you will move on in a more positive direction. I am not the squaring person but I'm pretty sure she didn't just cop out when she was doing the installation. I guess I am sorry to say that I have not heard much good about the Onyx 90 other than the price. Seems pretty new, and somewhat less expensive than the Fletcher - just curious, as I've also be hunting for used Fletchers and saw this at framingsupplies. Thank you both for you comments.
But again, I've had not experience with the others either. Also, in their shop, they have a work room available for use by artists and amateur framers. Keep in mind that I am 6', but I have no trouble sighting where the blade is going to enter the board, even with the 2 tubes on either side. Could cut that with my mountcutter and its squaring arm. They had a 30 day return policy when I bought mine.
Deepjoy I watched the video. Additional extras include a five legged collapsible stand which will allow use of the cutter without it being attached to a wall. There they have an Onyx 90 mounted on the wall for use. I don't have one, I have not seen one. I'm a little concerned with the measurement on their scale.
We will contact you with the correct shipping charges if necessary. The production stop is included at no extra charge. The Model 3000 is a more mature design, and perhaps it is still made here. And cutting glass, my old Red Devil has a very nice lever operated breaker bar to snap the glass. Send mail to with questions or comments about this web site.
