    Trying to like it

    I like the idea of a guillotine trimmer....but somehow I keep going back to my wire Fiskars. This guillotine is great EXCEPT it is difficult to get exact measurements every single time. The only good measure is at the top which, in this long trimmer, feels really far away! The bottom does not have a lip to hold paper steady nor a really good ruler. I have a feeling that this will also be going onto my pile of misfit trimmers to be donated. I'll probably be back to my Fiskars wire trimmer within the week. Sigh. Wish I had held off on this purchase.

    One suggestion

    I've had my trimmer for about a week. Have wanted a guillotine trimmer for a long time. Was previously using the Stampin Up rotary trimmer. I'm very hopeful this trimmer will eliminate the rough edges of cut cardstock. So far it is cutting beautifully! On the bed of the cutter there are little grooves at each 1/2" - my suggestion would be to have markings at each 1/4". My previous rotary trimmer also had a scoring blade so I am missing the ability to cut and score on the same tool but I guess I have to give that capability up to get clean cuts.

    Don't recommend no 1/4 inch grid

    Very disappointed that there is no 1/4 inch grid on the base of the trimmer. They have it for the 8.5.x11 trimmer but not for this one. I feel like I wasted my money.

    Great paper trimmer...accurate, lightweight, east to use!

    I have a heavy duty commercial paper trimmer but it's bulky, very heavy and takes up a lot of room in my craft studio. I wanted something that would store easily, with a smaller footprint and still cut accurately. This new Tonic trimmer is perfect. I store it under my work table and just pull it out when needed. The set-up of the extension arm is easy and it is extremely accurate. I make intricate cards and have had no problem with 1/8" measurements when cutting. It does a good job on everything from printer paper to heavier watercolor paper. I still need my big cutter for chipboard, etc. but the Tonic has become my day-to-day trimmer. It's become my favorite new tool!

    TH Trimmer

    One of my newest arsenal of tools. I finally decided to buy a new trimmer because I have a really heavy metal trimmer that I’ve been dragging around to Scrapbooking weekends. not fun. (I’m donating my old trimmer to a local charity.)
    This works so smoothly with the double pressure plates and is so much lighter. Im looking forward to using it everyday too.
    Thanks you.

  • How many sheets of 80 or 100 or 110 lb. card stock will it cut with one pass?   By: maryluddite78 (11-Apr-18) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • I tested my Tim Holtz-12.25 inch Maxi Guillotine Trimmer for you. I tried my test on 110 pd. card stock. I cut 6 out with no trouble. Tim said in his u-tube a couple of sheets. Tim is correct when he said a couple of sheets, because it cut like butter with 1 or 2. I had to use a little more mussel to bring the blade threw all 6.
      The cutter is not as beefy as the one I replaced with this trimmer. I thought it might be as strong, thinking they probably are pretty much the same. I was wrong, this is more light weight.
      What caught my eye on this one was because its narrow. My space in my craft room is so limited that I liked that it doesn't take up space like the big ones. It has a arm that will pull out if you need it for a 12 by 12 sheet of paper, but than you can push it right back in. I would not call this a commercial grade cutter, so if that's what your looking for than this wouldn't do, craft at home than this is for you! Hope I helped in your finding the right cutter for your projects! By: hoag (16-Apr-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

  • I just ordered this guillotine (my first guillotine) and I am totally sold on the product because of the reviews however I was wondering if it is possible to use it on 52pt chipboard or lets say the limit of chipboard thickness? Thank you so much for the help!   By: evangelina.nave (13-Jun-20) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • With our in-house testing, we have found that the maximum thickness that cuts effectively is 3 sheets of 90 lb card stock. Any thicker, the cut is not good. Our recommendation is that you use a rotary trimmer to cut thick chipboard. By: Tonic Studios (15-Jun-20) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    • I'm not sure how thick 52pt chipboard is but this trimmer is designed to cut various thicknesses of cardstock. I've cut up to 120 lb paper just fine but haven't tried any ticker - I don't imagine this trimmer could handle anything too thick. You'd have to try, just don't force the blade!

    Hi, when will this product be back in stock?   By: User (07-Apr-20) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • Hello,
      This product has been delayed like all shipments coming from China because of the virus. The schedule continues to change from day to day, so no date is available yet. However, if you want a guillotine trimmer, Tonic has item 454 which is a full size version (12x12) that is the same blade etc..., just a larger platform.

  • I have this Tim Holtz cutter. It is supposed to be self sharpening but is not. How can I sharpen it?   By: twin1 (07-Feb-20) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • Hello Twin1,
      This is NOT a self sharpening blade. Unlike traditional office product guillotine trimmers which have a sharp knife edge that you can sharpen, the Tonic trimmer never needs sharpening because it shears the paper. This Tonic trimmer is designed to cut 2-3 sheet maximum depending on the paper weight. To get an accurate cut, the user must slide the paper under the clear finger guard and push this guard down while cutting. This insures that the paper does not move while pulling the cutting arm down. By: Tonic Studios (07-Feb-20) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported.
