Default Tonic Trimmer

I purchased my first trimmer about 17 years ago which was a Tonic rotary . I loved it but alas I can no longer get replacement blades.
even back then it came with inches and centimetre markings as well as swing out arm and scoring blade.
meanwhile I purchased a WRMK product but am not crazy about it . I do not like the Fiskers having tried a friends years ago.
I am contemplating getting Tonic guillotine and wonder which size I should purchase?
the WRMK accommodates 12x12 so I have that already.
I would appreciate any and all suggestions. Thank you.

I have three sizes.......the one that cuts 12x12 (it has an arm that attaches to go beyond 6"). The next size down and the mini. When I bought the "middle" size it did have a cutting line to make a cut at 5 1/2 inches so I always had to use the larger one when cutting card bases. Now there is a Tim Holtz version and it is perfect........I keep thinking I am going to get one and replace my original but it cuts as good as it ever did. Regardless, I use the middle size the most and would recommend the Tim Holtz version.

I should have said it was the Tim Holtz trimmer size I was asking about.
I don’t see Tonic trimmers in any of my local independent stamp stores.

I bought the 8 1/2-inch Tim Holtz guillotine trimmer during Ellen Hutson’s last sale and I like it, though I haven’t used it a bunch so far. My go-to still tends to be my Fiskar’s since that’s the one I’ve been using for so many years.

I go my Tonic trimmers at JoAnn's so I saved quite a bit when I could use a coupon........only the largest one was what I thought of as a bit pricey. I don't know if they carry the Tim Holtz version or not.......they never did have mine in the store but I could order them. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

There are no Tonic rotary trimmers at any local or Michael’s stores here. I have only seen Tim Holtz.

I should have clarified my question as a card maker…… is it necessary to purchase the big Holtz guillotine or the smaller one as I also have WRMK trimmer which also scores .

the problem with the WRMK board is that it is very hard to read the markings and you have to fiddle to get the paper lined up.

I have a Carl Rotary cutter that I purchased at Staples over 18 years ago. I have several differant types of edges to use. I still can buy rotary disks to cut with. I have a Fiskers cutter because it's a lot lighter and easier to use when just cutting small amounts. Love both!
