Comments about Carl Heavy-Duty Rotary Trimmer:
I previously wrote a review of this product after a few uses. Since then, I am even more favorably impressed by it. I have used it multiple times to cut large drawing paper to size and it works perfectly. So simple to line up and make a perfect clean cut. Of course I haven't had to change blade or mat yet, but I have tested out how to do it and it's quite easy. Being able to cut large pieces of art paper to unusual sizes (sizes not sold) is a real benefit if you like to create works of a variety of sizes. I was wondering if I really "should" have purchased this, as I was able to live without it before, but now I'm quite confident it was a useful and worthwhile purchase. The quality and size are such that it should serve well for many years.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Quality large size trimmer - good price
I needed a cutter that will cut large pastel paper (25 in across)into smaller sizes, and do it with a clean, professional cut. This Carl trimmer does that perfectly. It is solidly built yet surprisingly light for the size paper it will cut, and much lighter than the guillotine style cutters. A rotary cutter is so much safer, too. I haven't tried cutting multiple thicknesses yet(I don't expect to need to) so I can't comment on that. I wish Blick carried the cutting mats for it, as I could see how those would wear out with heavy use. Blick only carries replacement blades. The cutter is easy to use and the blade side of the paper is held quite firmly by the clamp system. The measurement markings are easy to read and the location on the paper where the blade lines up is visible as well. I haven't had it long enough to know how it will hold up over time, but it seems substantial. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 only because the location of the measurements seems just a hair off - an 8 1/2 X 11 in paper actually sticks out slightly past the cut line when lined up at the preset mark for 8 1/2 X 11. It gets sliced down to maybe 8 7/16 when it should technically not stick out and get sliced at all. This is minor for me but could be an annoyance for certain applications. However, it's a pretty easy work around. When Blick has 25% off sales, the price is even better. The very low profile makes it easy to store. However, mine will be out at all times so it's ready to use. I'm glad to say good-bye to crooked scissors cuts and botched cuts with a hand roller!
