Having recently started crafting and having the inability to cut straight I wanted to get a trimmer/guillotine which was light weight, compact and did the job.
I had seen Purple Cows on TV and had seen demos of their paper trimmers and was aware before buying this that in order to use the trimmers you need to put pressure on the cutter yourself to get it to work and was a bit dubious about this but thought I would try it out anyway. I saw this combo trimmer and it looked light weight, easy to use and the ability to cut thicker card on the guillotine.
The trimmer and guillotine can be attached together to give you a bigger working area, or can be used separately (which I usually do). The trimmer has a number of different cutters and more can be purchased. I have 7 different blades for mine for fancy cuts, perforated cuts, straight cutting and scoring (for folding cards). Each cutting disk/cartridge can easily be attached to the trimmer to use but twisting them and locking into place. When I tried out the trimmer first and found that it is best to use on a sturdy service and put equal pressure on the trimmer element while cutting so you get a nice clean cut. I sometimes find that I end up putting less pressure on the cutting element the closure I get to me but have found that if I move the paper up a little bit towards the middle of the trimmer it is much easier to get a better cut. I've used a number of different thicknesses going up to 250gsm card and it has worked fine for me. I must also point out at this point that I have Muscular Dystrophy and therefore doesn't have massive amounts of strength in my arms sometimes (especially when tired) but this hasn't affected me while using the trimmer, it's just a case of finding the right way to use the trimmer.

This is my second purple cow 2 in 1 combo guillotine I have owned. The first one I had was damaged by children, hence the second purchase. It is a great cutter and every time I use the guillotine I achieve a straight cut. I am also pleased with the rotary cutter and love the different style of blades provided with it. I use it for scrapbooking and card making and it has never failed me. It can find it difficult to cut through 2 pieces of 300gsm card, especially if it is a thin section, but I often cut this weight card as double when making my card blanks without a problem. In the product description it does state that it will slice only one piece of thick card, so I have no problem with this.
The pro's for me are:-

This newer model does come with a better selection of rotary blades than the previous one I purchased.

The back finish is better than the white.

I find the markings on the base really helpful and accurate.

As I am sometimes a mobile crafter I am pleased that I can detach the rotary trimmer and take it with me. It is light weight and compact, the swing arm it great, and I find it easy to use the measurement grids/lines on this also.

It is all in all a great trimmer for my crafting needs, card, paper, photos etc, so a good all rounder.

The product is great, it does the trick and is well built. The only downside is getting hold of spares. The cutters need replacing after about 6500 cuts and the bit of plastic the cutter cuts into under the paper also needs replacing every so often, more frequent than the actual blade cutter. In the UK, you don't appear to be able to get spares. After speaking to the company who make this, the only thing you can get in this country it appears is the cutting strip. It is NOT meant for this product but the company who makes this product said you could buy this ([...])and it should work, although it would be about 3/4 inch too short.

Although a crafter, I was looking for a sturdy guillotine. Have tried the pink/plastic type trimmers aimed at crafters in the past, and been very disappointed with their flimsiness. This though really is the business. Not only do I get an excellent guillotine, but have the bonus of a trimmer too. They come apart to give you a separate trimmer and guillotine, should you so desire. When clicked together, you get a large surface, with room for 12" x 12" papers. The guillotine has a very good finger guard, and a press down bar to hold the paper safely in place whilst operating which prevents any movement of the paper. The trimmer is just amazing. Used on its own, there is a swing out stabilizer in the base, but the major selling point in my view is that the bar locks down onto the paper by pushing down the guide ends, so there is no way the paper can shift whilst you are sliding the trimmer along to cut the paper - fantastic! The only slight negative I have found, is if you use the trimmer on it's own, and place the slider bar on the right (if you are right-handed) the numbers on the guide scales are then upside down! But I can live with that. I think this is very good value, and a sturdy bit of kit.

A good robust general purpose Combo trimmer and guillotine. Ideal for paper craft people and general office work. Have tried all the different blades on paper and delighted with the result. Guillotine works fine on all the art card tried to date. Can be used separately if required. Very pleased with purchase
