Smile I'm in love!

Just thought I'd update everybody. I got my cutter yesterday. It was shipped so quickly that I couldn't even believe it was here already!

I am in love! This thing is incredibly accurate and will literally shave slivers off of a piece of cardstock evenly. Amazing! I just hope the blades will stay sharp a long time, as I don't think they are replaceable.

Anybody who is waiting, you won't regret purchasing this. Now is the time too, with the sale and free shipping to boot.

Happy weekend,

Sandy

Sandy
I honestly use the smaller one more. I use it for cutting smaller pieces of paper when I make my cards. The larger one I mostly use for cuttting the base of the card, and for cutting multiple pieces of paper at the same time. Plus my kids use it for school projects.

You gals are SOOOOO bad! I have talked myself out of buying this several times in the last 6 months, but I just took the plunge. Thanks for the info about the sale, that's the best price I've seen anywhere (in the last 6 months since I've been stalking this baby).

I can hardly wait to start cutting!

I bought this one from Joanns.com. http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.j...PRODID=prd7590 What's the difference between this one and this one that dtstampz bought in the post below
http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.j...RODID=prd27553

I hope I didn't buy the wrong one.

Yours is 8.5 inches tall and dtstampz is 12 inches tall...so yours won't cut as large of paper as the other one.

Well darn! I haven't even received this one yet. I bought it on the advice of someone here on SCS. Oh well, as least it will cut small paper.

I adore mine! It's the only trimmer I've ever had that always cuts straight and even the smallest sliver of paper.
It's light and very portable. LOVE it.
I got mine at http://store.scrapbooking-warehouse.com/tonic.html for the best price I could find online.

Exclamation Exciting discovery re: Tonic paper cutter!

I just discovered that you can use the grooves in the Tonic paper cutter much like you would use a ScorePal (I think). I do NOT own a ScorePal, so I'm assuming I know how it works, but I think it's similar to this...

I just put a barely visible mark on the edge of my cardstock where I wanted to score it, lined the mark up with one of the grooves, and then used my bone folder to score the cardstock by pressing it into the cardstock and running it along the groove. The groove is deep enough that it kept my bone folder straight all the way down. Plus you have the lines running horizontally so you can make sure you are "squared up" before scoring. Worked perfectly for me!

Give it a try, those of you who own a Tonic and don't want to plunk down the money for another piece of equipment quite yet.

My cutter that has been out for delivery since Friday has finally been delivered. IM IN LOVE!!!!! I just made a card and didn't have to recut any pieces due to crooked cuts, and I was able to shave just a tiny bit off of a piece (think 1/16) when I decided I wanted a slightly smaller mat.

YAY!!!

I know!! It's great being able to cut just a tiny little bit without ruining the whole thing

Oh. My. Goodness. My Tonic came today and I adore it. It cuts so beautifully. Highly recommend it!

I purchased the one with the 12" base. It's awesome and really doesn't take that much room - that said, I have three desks from Ikea for scrapbooking, so I'm not short table space. I think I will get the smaller ones in the future if I continue to like this one.

Thanks everyone! I just got in under the wire for the free shipping at Joann's, and that's a good sale price too.

I know how lame this is, but I've been doing ALL of my cutting with an acrylic ruler and a craft knife. I often press so hard that I've broken two handles so far! I've been needing a better, safer way to cut, and I think I've found it.

This is such a good place for real-world product information.

I purchased a tonic 602 paper trimmer, loved it for a while and now not so happy. On the good side, Tonic is going to work with me on an exchange. It has some great features like a 1/4 grid, clear ruler, and is light weight, and cuts stright. Negatives are the easy handle, it doesn't let you lift the ruler to the full position, the 12" extension keeps falling off, and I've had to replace the blade 3 times in 3 weeks. Want to get the guillotine.

I have both a Tonic (SU tabletop) and a Carl DC215. I love them both, for different things. There are different types of Carl cutters--the heavy duty series (DC) is *much* better than the light duty.

Sandy-
Thanks for the tip! I am going to try this out! I own a 12x12 Tonic cutter (from Joann.com) and have NEVER regretted getting it! It cuts so wonderfully (and straight!).

Just curious - does the arm on your cutter stay up on its own or do you have to hold it up while positioning paper? Mine stayed up by itself for a couple days but now it won't...just wondering if that is normal "breaking in" or if I need to call Tonic.

The arm won't stay up in additon to the problems I mention above.

I emailed tonic and the rep is out of the company, due back next week. I told him I wanted to exchange for guillotine and he said when he gets back he'll see what he can do. I emailed tonic from their web site customer service.

Default Joann.com code

I just used a code on Joann.com and received 50% off the 12" tonic cutter.
My total with tax, s&h was 34.40.
Now I can't wait to get the new cutter and try it out. I've never had a guillotine type for crafting before.

I received the guillotine replacement last week for no extra charge for the smaller version. Great customer service. the cutter cuts great but its not good for making small cuts like shaving off a 1/4" or less as you can't see close to the blade. So I still need a small trimmer. I used my button shank remover and cut off the handle from the small tonic. Now i can lift the ruler up and it will stay up.

Yeah! I just ordered one for Joann's. It will be here on 4/10 so I can play all weekend. Thanks for all your advice on this item. My MM cutter has been driving me crazy.

How many sheets of SU cardstock can you cut at one time?

Default Loose blade?

I have the 12" and really like the way it cuts. I do have a question for other Tonic users... After having used the cutter for a couple of months or so, does your cutting blade still stay in the up position by itself? Mine used to, but now I have to hold it up with one hand while positioning my paper with the other. Or, I can press the handle against my chest while I use both hands to get the paper ready. It still cuts OK, but this is rather annoying at times, and I'm afraid it will just fall down across my fingers before I'm ready to actually cut the paper.

I haven't looked yet to see if there is any way to tighten a bolt or anything. Just wondering if anyone has had the same experience.

You guys are such enablers. I was deciding between the tonic and carl and just put in my order at Joanne's for the tonic. I hope its everything I am dreaming it is. Granted, it won't be hard to beat my purple cow that I have now.

I bought the 12" Tonic from Joann.com with a 50% off coupon after reading this thread. So glad I did. I love it. Thanks for the info!

Default Proud Owner of Tonic Cutter

Hi All,

After reading all the great ideas here, I went ahead and got the Tonic Guillotine Cutter and boy oh boy am I glad that I got it. It is just awesome. I am totally happy with it and enjoying my straight cuts

I've had my Tonic for over a year now and it still works just as fabulously as the day I bought it! You will {LOVE} it!

Joanns was a lot less expensive than the scrapbooking warehouse, plus free shipping this week to boot! I just ordered the 12" w/ small base, the 6" mini and a pair of the Tim Holtz teflon scissors for under $40 w shipping!

Just when I have given up hope for the perfect paper cutter. I had the MM cutter and I used it to cut two pieces of cardstock and it now cuts crooked, because apparently it could not handle 2 pieces of paper. Then I bought a Dahle and it is not making a straight cut. I hate it when you put the paper against the top edge and it still cuts crooked. I am almost convinced, but nervous about investing more $ into a cutter.
