Nice trimmer

As with any craft, I don't feel there is one tool that will do every job. (A woodworker has many saws for different projects. We have many pans in our kitchen.) I love this trimmer for cutting heavier paper, I cut a lot of watercolor paper and it works great. You just have to remember to tip the blade in toward the metal. Also this trimmer works great when you just need to trim the smallest amount off. It will nicely cut the tiniest trim. But as far as cutting precise cuts, it's too hard to see where you're cutting. If you're measuring it works but if you have a design that you're trimming down you can't see where the cut will be. I use my smaller trimmer for those jobs.

I was so excited to purchase this trimmer. However, almost immediately, I was disappointed. The edges of my cuts are rough and jagged. I do not recommend this trimmer, especially for the price.

I don't think I would recommend this trimmer

Problematic cutter

I have the two Tonic guillotine cutters and they work great, however, the rotary cutter is difficult to get consistent cuts. It cuts very rough in one direction, almost all the the time, so I can’t use it to cut in both directions. It is also very difficult to see the cutting edge to line up with a pencil mark on the cardstock. I would return it but I bought it online and the shipping is too expensive.

I figured out how to make the trimmer work

After cutting lots of scrap yardstick I figured out that you need to apply a lot of pressure on the rotary blade to ensure that the blade turns and you get a clean cut. If you find that your cuts look ragged, try pushing down on the blade as you make your cut. I was able to cleanly cut many different thicknesses of card stock, multimedia paper, water color paper and even cardboard.
