We purchased this trimmer to replace one we have had at least 64 or 5 years. This new trimmer does not cut as well as the one we thought was worn out. Single card stock or 3mil laminate both get caught and do not cut.
We bought this trimmer so we could cut an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper so we can make small story books for our autism clinic. I am finally tired of dealing with this useless product and should have taken it back months ago. I have attached pictures so you can see what it does to your plain copy paper as you try to get a clean cut and this is with no more than 3 pieces of paper. This paper trimmer will also mess up with only one sheet of paper and does not even come close to the 15 sheet capacity. On top of that, the laser is rather useless as it doesn't even line up correctly with the cut edge even if you adjust it per the written instructions. Next issue is that one of the cut edges gets rolled up after you trim the paper. This has been happening since I bought the trimmer and I thought it was operator error, but I have tried slow cut, fast cuts and this trimmer just cannot do what it was labeled for.
Laser does work but I had to use new batteries (the ones that came with it didn't work); laser aligns great at the far edge where you need it most, just remember the laser is a guide and you should use the ruler marks too :)
