Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great!! At first, wanted to get rid of the 'green plastic thing', but was 'not removable'. However, it did end up being useful in holding the paper down and keeping fingers farther from the SHARP slicer/blade. No struggle in pushing down the slicer/blade, really does cut (easily) 30 sheets of paper, liked how the measuring lines went the whole length and sat solid on the table and didn't slip around. Only test left....how long will it stay sharp?!?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Guillotine Trimmer I received this and got busy using it. I make greeting cards and cut my own card stock. I cut 12 at a time and it cut perfectly. Very sharp. The safety features are great. Locking blade, rail guard and finger rest is a must.. The guillotine handle is very easy to hold and non slipping. The grid is easy to read on wood tone board. So happy to own this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Guillotine Trimmer This does the job for anything within the 12" size range. The green little guard makes sure nothing is over 12", which is a little bit of downside in the way I cut. Doesn't mean it's not fantastic for under 12" , which it's totally fantastic for that. Cuts thru multiple layers and different materials very easily.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked great until it didn't I purchased this product at the beginning of the school year for my students to use with science fair. It worked great until the hinge fell apart. I would be willing to buy a replacement hinge if there was one available.

The question as to how does one accurately cut paper was not fully answered in a previous question.  What numbers are used on the horizontal part of the to determine how much will be cut off?  Does one look at the left end of the paper to see how much ...

Asked by: donthun
Measure from the left side of the item being cut. The distance from the right edge of the board to the left side of the paper is the length of what you are cutting.

How to you line up where the blade will cut the paper? Its like guesswork every time?

Asked by: Patrick
Hi Patrick, Lining up where the blade starts and the trimmer ends should produce an accurate cut.
