Default The New Fiskar's ProCision Paper Trimmer...

My current paper trimmer is a Dahle 507. I've had this paper trimmer for a number of years. But it needs a new blade and another part, the clear plastic paper holder.

When I saw the Fiskars ProCision Paper Trimmer in a few different stores recently: Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's and Michael's, I started giving it some serious consideration. I like the fact that it has the capacity to hold and cut large pieces of cardstock. And I like the idea that it folds in half.

It does have some downfalls: price, lack of markings on the fold part and a learning curve. Here are some video reviews I found on YouTube:

So, if you have one, I'd like to know your thoughts on it, good, bad or indifferent. Your input will assist me in making my final decision.

Thank you!

Also look into the Cutter-Piller. I've been using one for cutting parts for a star book class. I really like the movement, easy markings, and a self sharpening blade. Plus it lights up under the cutting edge!

Also look at the portable one. Much smaller, lighter. I borrowed them from a friend who teaches the starbook classes. She lives that they are self sharpening.

I really have been wanting a full on 12 x 12. My current one is 6.5 x 12.15. When I cut cardstock, I really don't want to have to put that much thought into it. Know what I mean?

My friend had me try both, for my views. I liked them both but the 12x12 platform was my favorite of these two, for the same reasons you mentioned. I have a Dahle 554 that I love but it is big help takes a lot of table room. But, when cutting tons of chipboard, it's great.
