Paper Trimmers

The arm on my rotary trimmer is hard to lift up?

To assist you in lifting the bar on the paper trimmer, please move the blade carriage to the center of the bar. Take hold of the bar on either side of the blade carriage (do not use the blade carriage for lifting.) Put your fingers from each hand on the bar and place your thumbs on the trimmer surface. Now lift up on the bar with your fingers and use your thumbs as braces on the trimmer surface. This gets easier with each use.

 

How much paper can a trimmer cut at one time?

  • A personal paper trimmer can easily trim 1-2 sheets of paper at a time (e.g. 50-60 lb).

A rotary trimmer can easily trim 5 -7 sheets of paper at one time.

How do I change the blade on my trimmer?

  • As you near the groove, begin pulling the blade and it will slip out
  • Set the new carriage into the groove, slide it up the rail and you’re ready to cut
  • Note: Works with TripleTrack blades, style I
