I have become extremely satisfied wih this Dahle cutter. Following are the observation and performance conclusions: SHIPING - Product arived in a timely manner, and well packaged. No worries there.
PRODUCT * Sturdy metal base. Other plastic guillotine cutter bases I've tried before were just a tad warped. Metal base helps weigh down cutter. Less likely to slide. * The cutter came complete. Compared to other reviews, there were no missing screws or loose parts. * Most guillotine cutters have a separate blade atached to the cuttig arm. The Dahle cutter part IS the cutting arm. * Guillotine blade edge is not as accute (sharp angle) as standard guillotine blades. 20 degree blade angle compared to the sharper 50 degree blades. Its actualy safer this way, as its harder to cut youself if your hand touches the edge. I already got a paper-like cut on my knuckles with other brand guillotine blades from being so sharp. * Guide bar helps quickly...
I purchased this cutter recently and was delighted with it in many ways. The heavy construction makes it very stable, the blade has very little horizontal play and stays up pretty well if you lift it high enough. It is also quite sharp and cuts beautifully. I love the design for the paper clamp which lowers the clamp as the blade is lowered, but just in front of it so it is firm when the paper is cut. And the paper guide is long and easy to fix securely. I also admire their design for the lock. It's not at all intuitive and it takes a little more muscle than some, which I think makes it fairly childproof. But I have rheumatoid arthritis and even I didn't find it hard to use. However, I am a card maker, and I frequently have to cut paper to the eighth, or even sixteenth, of an inch. This cutter has marking only to the quarter inch! That makes it extremely tedious to secure the paper guide to the correct measurement. If this company has a similar cutter with better markings, I...
I am an elementary school art teacher and needed a paper cutter for my classroom. There are several paper cutters in various workrooms throughout my school. I have tried them all from the cheap flimsy plastic ones to the super heavy duty wood guillitine style ones. The heavy duty ones always have worked the best for me, but when pricing them, I discovered they were very expensive. When I found the Dahle paper cutter, I read all the reviews and decided to give it a try. (The price was much more reasonable!) I have had it for about 2 weeks now and I am thrilled with the quality of this cutter! It cuts easily through 8-10 sheets of cardstock or constuction paper at a time! It is lite-weight and very easy to use. I like that the "cutting blade" is not actually a sharp knifelike blade...but still cuts with ease. I also like the rubber "arm" that comes down when you cut to hold the paper in place and it also protects my hands from getting in the way of the blade. Coming from...
