Top Customer Reviews
I have bought at least 4 cutters for home use, NONE of which have lasted very long, despite being between $50 to $100. I decided, enough was enough. I wanted a cutter like the one I used to use at work. I know paying $200 for a cutter seems insane, but it is WELL worth it. Sheffield steel blade, clear marking, paper stop/guide, and really accurate cutting. You can literally shave off fine pieces of your paper or card. It is sturdy, solid, and does not slide at all.
One word of warning: When using this cutter, keep your hand firmly on the black slide part of the cutter more to the left if you are sliding it right, and more to the right side if you are sliding it left. This is so you do not pinch your hand when the "carriage" gets to the stop. Learnt that many years ago, the HARD way.
Do not hesitate buying this item or any of the cutters by Rotatrim, you will not regret it.
I tested a Rotatrim locally and found that it could cut a few 1/1000ths of an inch off of a business card, time after time. So we purchased the 18" model RCM18.
Shipping: It came on time and it perfect condition.
Results: We've made 500 cards now and 100 large prints. It saves time because the cuts are so precise, you make less cuts to get it right. It cuts so square, that when you bend the card stock, it bends to a perfect card. With the guillotine cutter, the cuts were not as square and then the bends were not square. So, we would make additional cuts to get the card front to line up perfectly with the back. Safety is a great feature of this cutter. We can now let our children use this cutter. We would never let them use the guillotine cutter.
Design: As an engineer with background in printing systems, I appreciate the simple hiqh quality design of this cutter. The cut is made by a sharp wheel that rides against an anvil straight edge. The wheel is forced against the anvil by a very stiff spring. The force and twisting moment of the spring is supported by the two rails. Lessor trimmers use one rail, which would make it much more challenging to reliably hold the cutter wheel against the anvil. They can resist the force, but don't have good way to resist the twisting moment. It cuts in both directions. Some high end trimmers will only cut in one direction - and that's unfortunate when you mistakenly go the wrong direction. I've done it and it ruins the print.
Value: If you must have rock solid, high precision cuts, and a cutter that will last a life time - then this is the one for you. Yes it is expensive, but when you are so happy with the quality - you forget about the price.
Enter the Rotatrim, a precision beauty. I never thought I'd fall in love with a paper cutter of all things, but after using this for cutting programs, cards, and photos, and getting spectacular results, I can definitely say that this is QUALITY machine. The self-sharpening action that comes with each stroke is an awesome feature as well--AND THE EDGES ARE PERFECTLY STRAIGHT AND SHARP! Another helpful feature is the triangular piece that you use to secure the paper in place so it doesn't wriggle during the cut.
If you want to avoid headaches and rework, BUY THIS TRIMMER!
I've had many trimmers some really cheap and even a more expensive Carl's rotary cutter and they were a huge disappointment! Many had the alignment marks wear off after 3 months and none of them cut straight.
If you're a paper crafter who needs to cut heavy duty chipboard then this is the trimmer for you! The Rotatrim cuts heavy chipboard like butter. I've had seven back operations and I just couldn't push down hard using my regular trimmers or an exacto knife, and with this - I can cut all day long without it hurting me. I checked to see if it cut straight and it does. It cuts several sheets of cardstock as well, which is very helpful if you're mass producing items.
I would highly recommend using the paper hold down if you will be cutting on both the up and down stroke. I tried cutting on the down stroke without the holder and my paper shifted. However, that is such a minor thing as you can always just cut on the upstroke so the paper won't shift.
I bought this item on May 26, 2012 and received it on June the 2nd. So, I've only had it for a few days but, I've already cut close to 1,000 sheets of chipboard and about 300 sheets of cardstock. this is NOT a small trimmer - it's heavy and its bulky - so room may be of concern.
This has been the Best investment I've ever made.
