I'm a little disappointed in the "accuracy" of the cuts on this device. It cuts fine. I'm very impressed with the way it will handle a pretty sizable stack of paper. In terms of quantity, it is everything I hoped for and more. My only problem is getting it to cut where I want it. The paper stop and associated scale (or measurements) will only get you close. The thumb screw used to lock down the stop forces the stop out of square so trying to cut a stack into several equal pieces is pretty tough. I cut, primarily, business cards and prescription pads. To save time I've had to cut wooden templates that I lay on the cutter and adjust the stop to it. That gives me an accurate cut every time. In my opinion, this is a pretty pricy piece of equipment to have left out that very important feature. Not sure I'd buy it again.

I needed a paper cutter for an office setting that does not do high volume cutting, and after reading the reviews I ordered the QCM 8200M, and because of the low volume I asked for one that had been reconditioned. It came promptly, and its construction is clearly solid - built like a tank might be more like it. Mine looked as if someone had simply returned it as I could not see any signs of previous usage.

One problem that showed up in other reviews showed up in my machine as well, that the paper is usually cut on a bias - a little thicker at one end - as opposed to being absolutely square to the other sides of the paper. I'm not sure why it does this, but it does.

My use of it allows me to adjust this cut by eye, which usually works out pretty well. This is made possible in part because with a little usage the blade scores the part of the machine it ends up resting on, and I use that line as a reference for positioning the paper.

A tip on its use: the cut is cleaner if the blade is pushed rather than pulled. The pushing allows for a smoother and more rapid cut that for me gives me a cleaner result. To do this once the paper is locked down step to the blade side of the machine, disengage the release for the blade and let it rest on the paper, and then press the handle down quickly. Works for me, and it keeps your free hand far away from the blade.

It's hard to describe how much better the QCM 8200M is than my Martin Yale 7000E. It cost less than half as much, requires about a tenth of the force to cut through a 1 inch stack of 65# card stock, the clamp mechanism works much more freely, stock is easier to remove from the clamp, the blade is easily replaced and leveled within minutes, the cuts are cleaner and more precise, I could go on and on. Long story short, my 85 pound assistant is now capable of cutting jobs that previously only I could do and for that, I'm extremely grateful.

When the unit arrived there was very little to assemble. Attaching the handle and paper guide was all that it needed, and I was up and running.
It's very smooth, and I use it for my hand-sewn books. Here are a few tips:

1) When you open the box and before you use the device, make sure that the finger guard is resting flat on the device. I didn't and snapped it.
2) Never do more than one work at a time. Don't pile up several individual works and expect it to cut straight. One at a time is better and doesn't add that much extra time.
3) If you are doing more than one like-sized project, cut them one edge at a time. In other words, I cut five books by setting the paper guide once and cutting all top edges together, etc. This will make for more consistent products.
4) Get a heavy terry cloth and wipe down the whole unit prior to using it the first time. There was a film of grease preservative all over it. Wipe the blade *last*. Even then cover your works with a paper top and bottom when cutting until the grease is gone.
5) The unit can handle a lot of paper and various paper weights. However, be sure that you press it firmly with the wheel. Also, you may want to place some heavy board between the press and the paper (and away from the blade). I tightened too much and bent my signatures.
6) The wider the paper the less likely it will cut all the way through. This can be solved by *very*carefully* adjusting the blade. I wouldn't recommend adjusting the blade. Just be aware of this gotcha.
7) As others have warned, the blade it wickedly sharp. Don't touch it.

I can't say better. Just the fact that I was able to cut about a two-week's worth of work in just one day says a lot.

This Stack Paper Cutter is heavy duty and well made. We have had no problems cutting through a stack of paper. The paper vice that holds the paper is well made and enough pressure can be produced to dent the paper.

The unit comes with "cutting sticks" that are like a piece of cutting board to protect the blade. The manual states a cutting stick can be used 8 times, (cutting sticks can be purchased). I emailed support to inquire on this statement. The reply pasted here clears this up and also adds a statement about the blade:

"The cutting sticks are made of the best self-healing materials. A new cutting stick can be rotated 4 times, flipped and rotated 4 more times. Each time, it can last for about 250-300 cuts. When the bottom sheets do not have clean cuts, it's time to rotate the cutting stick. When the paper tends to move with the blade even if it is clamped tight, it's time to have the blade sharpened."

The Stack Paper Cutter seems to be built well and I expect it to last many years.
