Re: [BKARTS] paper cutter



I have a Genesis Trimmer ... I give it the highest possible recommendation,
but only for one-three sheets of paper at a time -- no board or other
heavier materials.  It is a rotary trimmer, not a guillotine style.  I have
had my Genesis for 3 years now and have not had to change the blade.  It is
very precise.  If you need precision cuts of text or cover weight paper, you
will be very happy with it.  If you need it to cut matboard or anything
similar, it will not do the job.

I do not have the light attachment, though if you were doing precision
trimming on light-colored pieces of paper, I imagine it would be invaluable.

Just FYI, I believe there is about a 3 month waiting list for these
trimmers -- demand has been incredible
