I'm looking for a heavy duty corner rounder. One that will CLEANLY cut through chipboard, mat board, acrylic etc.

I've searched around and came up with WRM Corner Chomper and the Zutter Round It All. I like that the Chomper comes with 2 for the price of 1, but that would be a bonus-not a decision maker. I'd rather have the 1 that cuts thick stuff cleanly and maybe even on the 1st try

Have you tried either of them? Which do you think is better? Pros? Cons? Comments? Suggestions?!

Thanks - and happy Friday Eve!!

Tried both. The Zutter is the heavier duty one...although I'll admit I haven't tried acrylic.

I've had both. They both cut great. I gave my zutter away and use my corner chomper. For me it was space. The chomper cuts 2 sizes in one. The zutter was just in a drawer, and I had a friend that needed a corner rounder, so I gave it to her.

So for people with arthritis or other hand problems, how hard is it to squeeze each of these? I'm getting close to being ready to assemble my first book with my Cinch and need something to round the corners of the covers.

The Zutter will cut acrylic.

For squeezing, I think the Zutter would be easier. The Corner Chomper handles are so wide, it may be hard for you.

Thanks so much for taking the time to make a recommendation. I will order the Zutter immediately as I will need it very soon. I am so excited about getting this little book finished. Even DH is excited about it. He didn't understand originally why I would want to scrap our photos since he usually makes a slideshow of them for our computers. Now he sees the difference and says the scrapbooks are so much more meaningful and memorable. He wants this little one (6" X 9")displayed on the coffee table for everyone to see.

I have the the Zutter round it all pink edition and I was surprised how well it cuts thru chipboard. I have a small round punch that works good aswell but it ist for chipboard. I definately would go for the Zutter one.

This is in response to your post about tools and arthritis. I use a lot of the Fiskars squeeze punches. ( I don't think they make a heavy duty corner rounder, though.) The Fiskars squeeze punches all carry the Arthritis assn. seal of approval for ease of use. They also make some spring loaded handle scissors that have a comfort grip. They need a lot less finger power/pressure than regular scissors.

I finally broke down and bought the Corner Chomper from We R Memory a few days ago because my little corner punch got taken by my DGS for his scrapping (excuse for me to buy the Chomper) and I love it.

I have both - both cut acrylic, work great
BUT - I dropped my zutter and it broke in pieces. I tried to put it back together but no luck. Come on guys - it was a fall from desk to tile floors... really???? That was my last zutter purchase.

I used my Zutter to cut through the plexiglass that covers my craft table. It is thick.
