Hey, who ever suggested to cut an oval mat on glass, thanks. I have an old C&H and I just tried cutting one from the front and it worked great. Do you have to change blades every time?
 
Less, you're welcome.

I use a adapter so my Ovalmaster uses Dexter #3 blades. You probably do, too. I find when I install a new blade, the tip usually breaks off with the first oval I cut. It doesn't seem to matter. I still get lots of mats with each blade - broken tip and all.

Recently I tried using a glass "slipsheet" on my Fletcher straightline mat cutter. That didn't work at all.
