I cut up to 8 layers of fabric very easily, and I think you can with more. It is very versatile in both straight and curved cuts, even very tight curves can be done by cutting several layers at once cleanly and accurately. The battery has a large capacity and having 2, it guarantees to finish the job without hanging. The only contrasting is that it is very noisy, but it compensates for it by making the work easier and faster when you have to cut a lot of pieces. Totally satisfied with this purchase. 5 stars, no doubt.
