Yes Dawn ~ he's a keeper I think.
Jami ~ ummmmm so far it's still in the box. I had one heck of a time even getting it into the house and up into our kitchen considering I'm lucky to get up the small fight of stairs without something in my hands because of my horrible knees. But then carrying this? OMG THIS thing is heavy!!!!!! Once it got into the kitchen I got it onto the counter where it sat for about an hour. I had nowhere on my sewing table to put it but I cleared a small area so far so I did bring it into the sewing room so it's a little closer. STILL not opened up yet though because I have to finish clearing a spot on my table which means I have to clean my other table too since they're both a huge mess from all the stuff we've been picking up.
OH and a hint too for anyone that has been thinking about buying those big handles you put onto your bigger rulers. The handles have suction cup bottoms and are supposed to give more stability for you when cutting fabric with your ruler and the handles come in a few different sizes but the larger one costs almost $25. Last trip we made to Aldi's grocery store in the discount bin I found one of those suction cup bottom handles you use for the shower so you can have a handle anywhere you want in the bath/shower and it was marked down to $4.99 but they look just like the handles being sold to the sewing world for $25! So if you have an Aldi store nearby go check their discounted area to see if they might have them in your store too if you've wanted one of those handles. In case you are totally lost, this is the item I'm talking about.
ETA: OOPs the price there isn't as much as those I saw at the Expo
