Guide Review - Edge Pro 1210C Compact Rotary Paper Trimmer
This is great for cutting the fancy 12-inch x 12-inch papers so readily available these days, and it is also great for cutting more than one piece at a time. There is a plastic guild that holds your paper in place, which is great for stopping slipping. No matter which way you load the paper, the alignemtn grid will help you measure and keep it straight. They even have cut lines marked out to help you cut 3.5 x 4.5-inch photos. The large, easy-grip blade casing works well for both right and left handed users. It glides smoothly and effortlessly over the paper.
The only complaint I would have is when it comes to changing the blade. First of all, I had a hard time finding the correct replacement blades online. The part number is not written anywhere on the cutter itself that I could find, although I did find the part number printed on the box after searching a bit. I also struggled a little to get the middle bar off to change the blade. The tabs did not easily slide off. You have to watch the position of the blade when you take it off so you can get it back together facing the right direction becacuse the directions offer no guidance or illustrations. Also, I could not figure out how to remove the blade from the housing, but perhaps there are directions for this in the package for the replacement blades.
