New Paper Cutter

The 14″ rotary cutter arrived today and my heart sank when realizing the slicing surface was on 12″, preventing me from using this trimmer on my 13″ rollstock.  I messed around with it anyway and found out some things.  It will cleanly cut through:

  • An entire issue of the Economist
  • An entire issue of Popular Mechanics
  • Not an entire issue of National Geographic
  • Double thickness corrugated cardboard
  • A fist full of cat hair
  • A stack of six flour tortillas
  • Not  a Dorito
  • A Boy Scout neckerchief
  • The brim of a cheap baseball cap
