Okay trimmer but NO PAPER CLAMP
on 25 June 2009
I purchased this guillotine because I thought it would address my large paper trimming problems. With the paper guide I thought I was getting an aid that would help make sure all my papers were the same size. Hmmmm..... It does, sort of, but.....!
1. There is no paper clamp to ensure the paper is kept in place while you cut. Yes you can use fingers and I have but I ended up making a makeshift paper 'clamp' to help me hold the larger pieces of paper in place while I cut them. I found I ended up with slightly wobbly cuts without it.
2. The paper aligner supplied is wonky. So the part joining the guillotine is the only useful bit because the rest tapers off to the left and if used would ruin the right angle needed for my pages.
The cutting blade is fine. The construction okay for the price but for the want of a piece of tough plastic to guide and hold the paper this would be a great little guillotine but without them I can't recommend it.
