The Saunders 12" Professional M3 Rotary Trimmer represents the next quantum leap in trimmers designed by Saunders. Saunders, a leader in the professional trimmer market, has produced the M3 line to meet the high standards of pros and amateurs alike.

This trimmer is designed to easily and accurately trim gang printed sheets containing multiple prints in multiple sizes. Designed for safety, the hollow-ground tool-steel rotary blade is completely covered by the blade housing. The end supports are held firmly in place to help maintain both stability and cutting tolerances. The cutting head is die-cast alloy construction, to insure maximum strength and durability. The hand grip is ergonomically designed to provide maximum comfort for repetitive use.

This precision trimmer has the heft to cut through materials up to a 1/8" thickness (3mm) and still precisely trim dry mount tissue to hairline tolerances.

The M3 comes with a handy side guide which helps align your cuts so that repetitive measurements on similarly sized items are not required.  For additional assistance, the cutting surface is laid out in both inches and metric gradations, and the paper guide is transparent.

Saunders - on the cutting edge.

      Comments about Saunders Professional M3 Rotary Trimmer (12"):

      For over 12 years, I've used the 24 inch version of this trimmer (30x15 inches overall) and it has given me excellence service with fairly heavy use. But since I do a lot of 5x7 and 4.5x6 inch custom photo greeting cards, I wanted something smaller that I could use on my desk while sitting in a chair. This 12 inch cutter is perfect for anything printed on 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper. I like the printed guidelines on the base. It has a comfortable handle, it cuts straight and clean (after some self sharpening), and it can also handle 2 or 3 sheets at once. I expect to get many years of good service from it. The fact that I'm buying a second unit of the same brand should be the best recommendation, and my first one, now 12 years old, is still working great. Keep in mind that, while this is a 12 inch trimmer, it measures 14.5 x 18 inches.

      Comments about Saunders Professional M3 Rotary Trimmer (12"):

      needed an extra cutter in crunch times. it works well and as needed. It did need to be used a few times to get the blade sharp before using. after that it self sharpens, so it works. great.
