Default pleating tool

Having just looked at Stephanie's beautifully pleated tutus in the gallery I was inspired to try it myself. I was wondering if anyone has used a pleating mat like this one? They come in pleat widths of 7mm, 10mm and 20mm. For netting you wouldn't need to pleat it so far down the length of the net I guess. Thoughts?
