I've had this trimmer for 15 years

Comments about Dahle Hobby Rolling Trimmers:
The replacement blade is of top quality. I am a papercrafter. This is only the 3rd replacement blade I've order in the lifetime of owing this trimmer. I will cut 80 to 110 lb cardstock on a regular basis. The trimmer is still working well! Highly recommend!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Cuts great, but not a true 12" cutter
from South Lyon MI
This cutter works great, but there is no arm to flip out so you are limited to cutting paper to about a 8" length. Sure the paper can we 12" wide, but the cutting width is quite narrow. Seems suited to photographs and not much more.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Dahle Rolling Trimmer
By Kitty Cat
from St. Petersburg, FL
Our older Dahle Roller Trimmer lasted for YEARS of daily use by the designers in the office. Granted, I've gotten replacement parts a few times snd the guide had built up glue on it. It was looking a little grungy, so I thought I'd treat them to a new one. Everyone loves it. It's such an awesome value!

I needed to replace my Fiskars cutter. I needed to replace the blade on the Fiskar but, found out the new ones I purchased no longer fit. This was a perfect reason for me to upgrade since I was never happy with my previous cutter. I am thrilled with my purchase.
Dahle paper trimmer
By art teacher
from san diego
I wish I had bought it sooner and saved time trimming the art work. I'm an art teacher and I have hundreds of work to trim.This trimmer is precise to the melimeter, cut cleanly and light weight.It does not cut too well when I cut 5 sheets of construction (90lbs)paper at once. For this I go back to using the guillotine paper cutter.
Even a child can use

Great item easy to use. Great for sizing photo
Great little paper cutter
from Volcano, HI
I've been using this paper cutter for years. I bought it as a starter cutter but liked it so much that I never upgraded. I originally bought it to repeatedly cut strips off of a roll of paper but now I use it to cut and trim everything. It's solid construction and metal base are very durable. I've literally made thousands of cuts and the blade is still pretty sharp (I think I might have flipped the blade around once to use the other side of it over the years).If you want to cut a very thin strip it's a good idea to flip it around so you have something to hold on to (cutting the thin piece off of the whole) because there is a plastic guard that holds the paper tightly but can slip a little if the paper doesn't stick out enough for you to hold or if you are cutting something very tiny you can temporarily remove the plastic guard but watch your fingers!

Tough to get a straight line
By Lindley Karstens
from Desert Hot Springs, CA
The machine feels solid and works smoothly. I would give it 4 stars except it's for hobbyists, and if there's one thing we hobbyists need, it's a foolproof piece of equipment even if there are no fancy bells and whistles. My complaint is that if you line up the paper to be trimmed using the measuring marks at the top and cut, you will probably have a skewed line because there isn't the teeniest edge to guide the paper after 1 1/16". So the cut tends to be higher on the right side than the left, making the line skewed further to the bottom right. I feel this is a design issue and wish the engineers had built and used a prototype before sending it off to be manufactured.

A great paper trimmer! This cutter has served me well for the past 2 years. It cuts accurately (no slipping) and also cardstock. I'm planning to upgrade to the "premium" model only because I need to cut full-sized sheets of paper and mat board. Otherwise I'd be just fine with this one!
