Cassese CS89 vs. Mitre-Mite VN2+1


Grumbler in Training
Oct 3, 2005
I would like to start framing in my shop and need to know which machine is superior and why. I am also looking for a nice mat cutter and considering a Keencut Ultimate Gold if anyone has used their mat cutter I would greatly appreciate input.
Bruce, welcome to The Grumble. Type in "Cassese" in the "search" section at the top of the screen. This will give you a ton of information on that machine.

bruce, anytime you need help, do not hesitate. This is one of the main functions of The Grumble, trying to help each other. You would be amazed at how far we will take this concept if we believe in the project.

The archives are loaded with answers to just about anything you can think of. If you do not feel like doing a search, get the question out here on the forum. It does take a little intestinal fortitude to make that first jump onto this forum, so give yourself one atta boy.

Hi Bruce,

The CS89 and Vn2+1 are both great machines offering good value. Their differences are minimal.

The Keencut is a fine mat cutter, but it's not very popular. I would recommend Chronomat, Fletcher-Terry, or if you're on a tight budget, the Logan 6xx series cutters.
