I got this item to help with my new hobby and it has already saved me HOURS of time in a few short weeks. There was a learning curve for me where if I didn't push down on the part that holds the paper down my projects would get ripped instead of sliced nicely. That was all user error though and now that I know what I'm doing I haven't had the problem again.
I've had a paper cutter [...] for the past five years, and it's worked wonderfully; however, it was hard to measure how much paper (in inches) I was cutting off, and the blade eventually wore out.I received this paper cutter for Christmas, and it's fantastic. With this much larger trimmer with measurements included, I can see how much paper I'm trimming at once. It's perfect for cutting photos, making cards, school projects, etc. Definitely a good buy!
The only thing that is good about it is the size. After only 6 months, the wire started to shred. It also doesn't cut straight. I have to hold the paper at an angle along one of the lines to align it correctly.
Thankfully it has a lifetime warranty and I can return it.
