How Does This NEW and Improved Trimmer Compare With Our Old Trimmer?
- The metal blades piece is significantly longer than the old one;
- The weight is much lighter than the old one; It's about an inch narrower;
- It has an opening at one end, a kind of diamond shape that would allow it to be hung for storage;
- The cutting guide snaps down to hold it closed for locking instead of a slide button on the end to lock it;
- The extension arm does not need a "foot" to keep it steady when extended;
- The ETxtension arm, when in closed position allows paper to butt against it at the 6" mark which is great for measuring smaller pieces;
- The 6" position on the rule mark has a little arrow pointing at the 6" line so it is very clear where the measurement is, making the jump from the board onto the extension arm easier to read for more accuracy;
- The extension arm locks into place by pressing down slightly and moving it into a grove at the tip of the arm near the SU logo;
- The "pressure lip" of the cutting guide is in a better position to prevent the blade getting "stuck" when pressing down to hold paper in place for cutting;
- The scoring blade has a better scoring implement on it so scoring is very smooth (you can't event tell you are scoring!) and it gives a better score line, but is less likely to cause certain DSP to tear after scoring;
- It's very streamlined and because of its even rectangular design it will be much easier to pack and fit into a storage space in a more compact way;
- There is an edge all across the top, which really helps when cutting small pieces accurately:
TIP: When you cut cardstock, if you push the blade down very hard as it is drug through the paper, it leaves a ridge on the edge. However if you cut and just gently drag the blade through the piece of paper and it cuts beautifully and there will be no ridge on the edge. So just use your blade gently you don’t have to press down really hard.
