Comments about Staples A4 Precision Trimmer:
I had only used this trimmer a couple of times. When I tried to cut card (about 260 gsm)the blade slipped off the runner and cut into the ruler. now it doesn't cut straight
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

nasty, but not cheap
By coffee muncher
I was given this item and when I tried to use it I was surprised just how bad it was. I cant see how it can cut the number of pages it suggests, holding any number of pages in place seem to be beyond its capabilities. Cut edges were left ragged and uneven. A new blade might fix the that but at almost £8 for a new blade? Pure banditry.A different make and spare blade were secured for the same price on the net. This is one to avoid.
This product looked good but after only cutting 2 sheets of paper the plastic ruler got caught in the blade and shredded. Also the line up was out by about 5mm.
A sturdy, every day use product
As stated previously - this is a suitibly sturdy product for everyday use. Cuts & trims consistantly.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
not a precision cutter!
The plastic guide on the trimmer does not cover the blade, so when you put your paper under it to cut on a line, the cutter cuts higher up than you expect making it very hard to line up! Mine has been returned!:-( its a shame because other than this it would be a good buy!
from Whitley Bay
An improved version of the earlier model which worked well for many many cuts.
I would recommend this product

Don't rely on the ruler

About Me Value Oriented
Construction seemed good in shop. However when I used it for the first time I found that the ruler guides were inaccurate. The top and bottom guides did not line up. The bottom ruler was 3mm short on a 55mm cut. It was not easy to square a smaller piece of paper/card.Dissapointed
Good value occasional trimmer
A good trimmer which does the job.I found the cutting action quite stiff but maybe this will ease with time. The table/plate upon which the paper rests is quite small but manageable. The guide ruler seems to hold the paper nicely and the blade cuts neatly. Good value.
