Re: [BKARTS] Kutrimmer cutters

Since I cut very few boards from binder's board I got rid of my
board shear some years ago.

Now, when it is necessary to cut down a sheet of binder's board or
barrier board, I use an old Keeton mat cutter, such as those used
by picture framers.

It has two blades; one cuts a 45 deg. bevel - the other makes a
straight cut.

An added advantage of the bevel blade is that I can cut a hair-line
bevel off the edges of a book board instead of using sandpaper and
making a pile-O-dust.

And when I'm done with the cutter, it hangs up on the wall.
