          I use this cutter for photographic paper. I got the 18" cutter because I can only print 13" wide at this point, but if I ever upgrade to a 17" printer it'll still work.

          Once you get the hang of the movement and starting points it works great.

          I'd like to see the paper end guide (stop)come off but it captive. Not really a biggie, but for longer paper I have to mess with it a bit.

            Comments about Rotatrim Monorail Cutter (18"):

            I've never used a cutter/trimmer before, but was looking for something to cut photos/cardstock for a 'Christmas photo with Santa's pony' program at our barn. It's sharp and steady and durable!

            As a novice, I didn't know what to expect. I was hoping for something that would help me cut the photos and stay sharp. I was also hoping for it to cut multiples at the same time. There are guides, but I guess I was thinking it would say "for 3x5, place card here." lol I figured out how to use the ruler on the other side. And it didn't cut as many multiples as I was hoping for. But, that could be just me not using it correctly.

            Bottom line, it's easy to use, sharp, holds the paper/photos steady. I like it!

              I've used professional trimmer's before, but never had my own. I bought one when I bought a 13x19 printer, assuming that I would be able to cut down my prints easily. While I can cut the sizes I want, my only regret was not purchasing the 24". This thing is awesome!

                  I have an epson 4000 which prints to the 17" size, so I went with the 18" cutter but I do wish I had went ahead a went for the larger size. I does such good job that I wish I had the flexibility to do more with it. The opening with the blade in place is just barely large enough to slide my media through. But it does fit and it cuts very well. It is quirky that you have to slide the blade back to the starting position before you can remove your media but it holds the paper very secure and the return trip does not seem to cause any problems at all other than the necessity to form the habit of remembering to do it before you try to remove the paper!

                  Comments about Rotatrim Monorail Cutter (18"):

                  Previous trimmers that I have owned were never "true." They never cut any of my photographs truly square or accurately. Needless-to-say, it was a real disappointment to take the time, trouble and expense to produce an outstanding photograph for display only to have it flawed by a deficient trimmer. I do not have this issue with my new RotaTrim trimmer, it performs flawlessly allowing me to produce a truly professional photograph. I could not be more delighted with this product.
