Great for adults to teach mature responsible children about safety and the dangers of such a product, but they still should only be allowed to use it while being monitored by a guillotine product knowledgeable adult so the kids too can become crafters, safely. It's also a great way to bond, and showing them you approve of their developing responsible behavior as you pass down your crafting skills to them.
I own a few professional guillotine trimmers, but when it comes to low cost, respectable accuracy with square cuts, portability, and being light weight--you really don't need to look any further because it's that we'll made for its class. It's hard to imagine why a crafter could not put this small trimmer to smart and handy use. Buy it and enjoy it just as it was designed to do. You'll get your low cost investment out of it long before you'll need to replace it as it's most definitely a crafter's little buddy for light duty jobs...
I almost forgot to mention, and before you open your purchase, don't forget to plan to use the heavy gauge plastic clam shell container that your trimmer comes in because it makes a great suitcase to store the trimmer and carry it around. Here's how to do it: Carefully cut the crimp marks off on three sides, and that's the top (where the carrying handle is), and then both of the longer L & R sides, but DON'T cut off the bottom crimps because that area becomes the hinge to make the suitcase, and now you can remove and return your trimmer to the suitcase as needed. You can tape or get a couple large 7" rubber bands to make sure the suitcase stays closed due to the blade. I believe, though, a bungee cord holds up much better.
** I HAVE to add this to original review. The company must have seen my review because I received an email, out of the blue, and they wanted my mailing address. They MAILED ME A BRAND NEW PAPER TRIMMER which works PERFECTLY. I offered to send the wonky one back. They declined and said this was a GIFT!!!!! Now I love TONIC EVEN MORE THAN BEFORE!!! Mahalo and Thank You Tonic!!!
Also the 1 inch increments on the grid are a bit wider and can be used for scoring! :)
Too bad as this seems to cut much straighter than my large cutter that is the same style different brand. I also wish the end went to 5.5 instead of 5.25. Would be perfect for A2 cards. I bet I can figure out a way to make it work
Overall I like the style and the cuts are straight but I can tell the sticking halfway through the cut is going to be annoying.
