    Are there any replacement parts needed?   By: User (04-Apr-16) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • No, it has a self sharpening blade. What I like about it is that it's six inches wide. So I can cut my photo to any size that I want. I love Tonic trimmers. I give it five stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ By: raeraesma (07-Apr-16) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    • No additional parts needed. Cuts very well, blade is sharp and I recommend this paper cutter. By: elbonnelg (07-Apr-16) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    • I have the smaller Tonic paper trimmer. I find it helps to hold down the paper guard with your left hand to keep the paper from shifting as you cut. By: mrs.tom (30-Nov-16) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

  • Hi,
    How do you remove the cutting guard off of the 8.5" guillotine cutter?   By: JvV (03-May-21) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • Hi JvV,
      This plastic finger guard snaps in and is easy to remove. To remove it you do the following. I used a thin metal ruler to remove mine as I think a screwdriver could be to thick. The guard is secured in by two holes, one at the top and one at the bottom.
      1. The clip is in the bottom hole. So this is where you will get the guard to release.
      2. Raise up the guard and put the ruler (or thin screwdriver) between the guard and trimmer top close to the bottom hole.
      3. From under the guard put "light" pressure on the plastic piece that is going into the bottom hole (pushing towards you) and pull up the guard while applying pressure on the clip. The guard should pop out of that hole as you pull up. IF IT DOES NOT COME OUT EASILY, APPLY A LITTLE MORE PRESSURE AND PULL UP.
      4. Once the guard is out of the bottom hole, lift up the plastic piece to the angle of your cutting blade and it should come out of the top hole.
      If you have any questions or need help, please call us at 209.253.0596 and ask for Gary. By: Tonic Studios (03-May-21) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

  • Will the blade dull if I cut thicker plastic sheets (i.e. report covers)? Is there a way to sharpen the blade should it get dull?   By: Shell-a-rama (07-Feb-20) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • Hello Shell-a-rama,
      With plastic, it is best to cut one sheet at a time as the plastic is very smooth and will slide if you cut more than one at a time. Please note that you canNOT sharpen this blade. This is not a traditional guillotine trimmer where the blade has a knife type edge. The bottom of the Tonic blade is flat, so you are not cutting the paper, you are shearing it.

  • I just received my trimmer. Is the arm supposed to "lock" when pulled upright? Mine stays up until I pull it slightly to the right to make my cut. Is this the way it was designed or do I have a defective product?   By: dsa (07-Dec-18) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • I don't have this particular trimmer but I can tell you that at work we recently were required to replace all trimmers with newer models that have the safety feature you are describing. It's meant to keep the arm from slipping down and cutting when you are adjusting your paper. We hated it because it took a while to get used to. My own guillotine trimmers at home are years old and don't have that feature but I can see how it would be required on newer products. By: MoniL (09-Dec-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

    • I bought my trimmer a few months ago and that feature is not on it. It looks like this is a new safety feature that has been added to the newer models. By: SheilaDavis10 (11-Dec-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    Do the Tim Holtz paper cutters come with a warranty & if so how long?   By: User (09-Nov-21) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • All Tonic Studios products have a warranty for any manufacturers defect. Regarding the paper trimmers, they have this warranty, however if the user cuts through metal like a staple and damages the blade, this is not covered.

  • I usually am cutting 12x12 paper, but this is only 8.5. would this still work for me?   By: waggityann (11-Aug-18) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • The 160e is designed for 8.5" x 11" paper. If you are cutting 12" x 12" I suggest that you purchase the #1980e trimmer. Here is the S.com link for that item - https://www.scrapbook.com/store/ton-1980e.html

      Let me know if you have an other questions.
