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.

What a disappointment

There is a small range of yardstick that the trimmer will cut without shredding the paper. Heavy cardstock 80 lb and up does not cut cleanly. The paper looks like it was ripped and not cut. Thin paper won't cut at all. The Tim Holtz guillotine trimmer is better investment.

Tim Holtz® Rotary Media Trimmer Disappointment

This was supposed to be the trimmer of my dreams but turned out to be not so perfect. When it cuts it's like cutting butter. Unfortunately, when it doesn't it is awful. I only cut one sheet at a time of 110lb or 80lb. paper, it will cut beautiful for a few sheets then it just shreds the edges. This happened almost immediately from the first time using it. I would love to hear from others if they are experiencing the same problem. I'm meticulous about lining everything up and using the paper holder to keep the paper firmly in place. As you know this is not a cheap trimmer! I don't know what hurts more. the cutting problem or the complete disappointment. I was expecting so much more. :-( I bought this Tonic trimmer through Simon Says Stamps.
