Very Nice Trimmer
I'm a photographer and needed a nice Trimmer. My first purchase was one of the plastic Guillotine trimmers at 15" cutting length and I was very disappointed in it's performance. Although I won't be using it a great deal I wanted an accurate trimmer (I think anyone who buys one probable does) but so many trimmers had poor reviews unless you wanted to spend $300.00 or more I was looking for closer to $100.00 (yes I spent a little more than that but with coupon was close enough). I looked a various reviews and Staples had this at the best price at the time so I tried it and I am so far very glad I did. It is very accurate and works well. I spent about $90.00 more than the plastic trimmer I tried first but this one is well made, bigger, and accurate - well worth the difference, I do have to say I cut my photos one at a time so have no Idea if this will cut a huge amount of paper accurately. I also built a paper holder that fits under the guard and close to the cutting edge (it has felt on the bottom so my photos don't get fingerprints or marks) so that when I cut a photo it holds the photo down along the edge for an accurate cut - I did find this necessary when cutting longer cuts of the thicker photo paper. I'm not sure why the company doesn't have something like this. Using only one hand to hold down the paper while using the other for the cutter just doesn't work well for the reasons stated above.
