Rotary Cutter
 
I am looking for a Rotary cutter that cuts straight and the dimensions are correct. I already tried the big fiskars one and don't like that the 5 1/2 " mark is in the crack. So then I bought the Carl Professional 18 inch trimmer RT218 and the dimensions are off. Well that definitely is not going to work. What else can I try.

It's not a rotary, but the Rotatrim was the best purchase I've made in 20 years

Which Rotatrim do you have?

I have the 18" for cutting down watercolor paper but the 15" one is great for cardmaking.

Really a stellar investment.

I had the 15" Rotatrim, then got the 12" due to lack of space. BEST trimmer out there!

I looked up Rotatrim... looks like rotary to me. Is there an non-rotary one?

Me too......I'm confused I looked up the Rotatrim and it looks like a rotary trimmer to me. Do they carry a regular trimmer too?

The Rotatrim is definitely a rotary trimmer, and in my opinion, the best trimmer on the market. I have the 15" Pro and especially love the ease of use and accuracy of cutting.

I can’t believe how costly the Rotatrim line is. I have the Carl Rotary Trimmer, wouldn’t recommend it. It doesn’t cut straight as the lower bar at the bottom where you put your paper up against is not straight.

I bought a Carl years ago. I had the same problem with it not cutting straight. I bought a Cutterpillar Pro a few years ago and love it.

I recently bought a Creative Memories rotary trimmer and absolutely love it. I can cut two pieces of heavy card stock and up to 3 pieces of DSP if I press firmly and go back and forth a couple of times. Single pieces of either are a breeze and the cuts are so clean.
You can also buy different blades for it and the cutter stores the blade cartridges underneath. And it's only $50.

No it's not rotary - it's a regular blade.

That was my experience too. The Rotatrim is costly because it's extremely high quality. Made in England.

Lydia
how many sheets of say SU cardstock can you cut neatly at once. also do you have to apply much pressure when you are cutting?

I have a Cutterpillar and I love it. I was tired of buying cutters and not being able to replace the blades after it was discontinued. You will never need new blades with a Cutterpillar. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby with a coupon. Worth every penny.
