Not heavy duty at all Aluminum scratches very easily Rips bottom half of cuts :(


I just purchased this paper trimmer. It trims very nicely. However, after cutting only two pieces of cardstock, the aluminum bed is already scratching. And yes, I did remove the protective plastic film. When taking the film off, it also left a wierd residue on it. I sure hate to see what this cutter will look like after using it for awhile.
