Topic: Reeds N Stuff bassoon cane guillotine - questions

Hi all,

I'm wondering if anyone owns a Reeds n Stuff stand alone bassoon cane guillotine? I'm curious to know a few things about it.

1. Does it cut the ends straight or is there a slight angle on the cut?
2. Can you cut raw cane, ie. just cane that's been split? Or do you have to pre gouge the cane first?
3. How many cuts do you get out of a blade? I know on this model the blade is a circle and it can be rotated for a total of three cutting surfaces before the blade needs sharpened or I'm wondering how many cuts do you get out of one blade (all 3 rotations)
