I bought it and it works great, however it does not cut through SU's c/s in one pass so I had to return it. But I really like the idea of only having to buy a blade to make wavy cuts, rather than have to carry around 2 trimmers. If you are only using DSP or lighter c/s than SU's then I would definately recommend it!

I don't use much of SU card stock but that's a bummer to know. I do use other paper that is thicker than SU though. [email protected]!)[email protected])!) just my luck. I wonder if the blades dull easy?? Hummm?

If the blades are anything like the first one, it's not worth your time OR money. I got the original and hated it from day one (and I used to be a Consultant!). The blades dulled after a handful of cuts, and they were pricey for as often as you had to change them.

Seriously, I doubt any cutting tool Creative Memories comes out with is going to be "superior" to other quality items that you can get elsewhere for much less.

Sorry to sound jaded, but the reason I got out of CM was the price issue. Everything was at least 25% more than others were charging for a comparable item.

Thanks for the info. I'm thinking of investing elsewhere. Mind you I have the other CM one, and haven't had problems with it thus far, apart from needing a new blade. But at AUS$8.50 its pretty pricey I think. Decisions, Decisions.

I initially bought the cricut rotary cutter, and that was aweful. At a crop there was a CM consultant and I was looking at it. A cropper there had one and I asked her about it. She showed me why the the Cricut one was aweful (very small short blade) and compared it to her CM one.

I ended up buying the one from CM (as well as the one that will do waves). I just got a pack of the confetti white SU cardstock and tested it out. Cut right through it in one pass. Perhaps they have changed it?

I've been very happy with mine, and will say that was the first time I cut SU Cardstock with it. Usually I cut CTMH paper. But it worked just fine.

I ended up ordering it before I saw all the responses,( There were no responses for a few days) I do use SU paper along with the cheaper stuff from Mikes, HL, JA But my fiskars is so bad anything is better. I always get a curve with my fiskars it is so annoying. I will let you know when I get it and test it out. Thanks for all the input. Stef

Default CM Rotary Trimmer

I just got mine and I love it. It cuts everything and the blade changing is very easy. The blade was VERY sharp & I had no problem with SU or Bazzil or CM cardstock.

Default please keep us posted

hi, thanks for all the input. please keep us all posted as to how the blades hold up. i'm also thinking of purchasing the CM rotary trimmer hoping the blade will be sharper than the one i currently have and love the fact that it also has a scoring tool. i only use SU cardstock so the thickness of the paper is really a concern.
