Re: [BKARTS] Binder's board



I have a Kutrimmer and have been using it since September.  I cut .82 Davey
Board with no problems.  I got the 1071 Kutrimmer, which is rated at being
able to cut 40 sheets of paper -- most of the others are rated at 30 sheets,
I believe.  The only problem with the 1071 is that it is not quite big
enough to cut a full sheet of Davey board with the grain -- I first have to
trim it in order to square the edges.

I've used a friends cutter that is similar -- I'm not sure of the brand, but
it is not a Kutrimmer -- and it is much more difficult to cut board on her
cutter than it is on mine.  I think it might be because of the higher "sheet
rating" that my Kutrimmer has.

HTH,
Ann
