Inventors of the Wall-Mounted 4-Sided Mat Cutter

In 1974, Harry Esterly needed a new dimension in mat cutting. The original mat cutters were limited to cutting straight lines, one side at a time. But by mounting four mat cutters onto his garage wall, Mr. Esterly created a entirely new system with tremendous advantages for cutting matboard. He created the first Esterly mat cutters and an industry was born.

  • Wall-mounted baseboard saves shop space and makes for comfortable use
  • Professional construction and sturdy materials: with decades of experience, these long-lasting mat cutters are Made in Maine.
  • Flexible mat cutters to meet your demands: from oval/circle knife carriages, to plexi/glass trimmers to semi-automated pneumatic mat cutters, Speed-Mat offers customized systems
  • Efficient cutting, from 10 matboards to 10,000- we can make your mat cutting operation more efficient at every level of mat cutting capacity
