    Dahle 508 reviews

    508 Personal Rolling Trimmer (18") is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 49.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good inexpensive trimmer for 13x19 I was looking for a trimmer for my 13x19 printer, and this fit the bill without breaking the bank. Like many others mine arrived just slightly out of square, but as mentioned by another review, a quick adjustment by loosening the screws on the end cap and I quickly got it perfectly square. The trimmer produces very clean cuts, even on thicker fine art fiber and rag papers, and can trim very slim ribbons off a print. It nicely holds down the media once you begin the cut as well. It has an 18 cutting area, which is just big enough for me to trim down my 13x19 paper for 12x18 prints (trimming the short ends first, leaving an 18 print to trim the long sides). It's worked great so far on about 30 prints for me, and I have no reason to believe it won't last quite a while. I'd love a rototrim, but for my needs it's a bit expensive and this Dahle works great for the price, once the minor correction to square was made.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not square but fixable I've had this trimmer for a few years and finally decided to try to make it square. Previously I've always aligned the edge to be cut against the edge of the guard and not by the left guide. I had a large (for me) job and decided to try to fix it. I noticed that the left end plastic part wasn't flush against the main metal base, but the right side was. Loosening the three screws underneath allowed for enough play to move it flush. Now it's perfectly square. It's a good low volume trimmer, but it should have come properly assembled from the factory

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the price This trimmer is great for photographers and scrap bookers. The trimming table has the lines to guide your cuts and to create intricate angled shapes. In addition, the self-sharpening blade eliminates rough cuts and keeps the trimmed edges clean and sharp. This trimmer being 18, makes trimming and cropping an image easy, the large size of the cutting area allows you to cut once, eliminating the need to make multiple cuts to achieve the desired size. The trimmer is sturdy and reasonably priced, and will surely meet my needs for a long time.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Junk Worked oK for a little while..The plastic guide is cheap and the blade for no reason nicked it during a cut and it was all over..The guide just got worse and ultimately became useless..Now the blade jumps off the slot every time..Dont wast your money

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK inexpensive trimmer, but poor quality After using a variety of quality trimmers and mat cutters for over 30 years; and teaching art/photo, I ordered the 508 trimmer, as an inexpensive backup for my studio. After one use, the plastic guide literally popped off and flew across the room.It was broken. I immediately contacted the Dahle Co. A representative e-mailed me right back; shipped another plastic guide FREE of charge. It was great to have a company stand behind it's product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cuts clean once squared up My unit came out of square, it was easy to correct by loosening the screws on the back and adjusting it to square. It would have been nice to see it come from the factory square, but I had read the reviews and knew my chances of getting one square was slim. Good cutter for the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great when aligned This trimmer works great once it has been properly aligned. I wish the alignment instructions were included with the manual as it would have saved me time and I wouldn't have had to contact Dahle for assistance (which they were great at). The alignment process is very easy to complete. You will need a carpenter's square. The left and right guides are secured with three screws on the underside of the trimmer. Adjusting one side at a time, loosen the three screws, but don't remove them. It does take much loosening. With the square, align the guide to the edge of the trimmer and re-tighten the screws making sure the square does not move. Repeat on the other side. Now it cuts straight every time.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not square The one I ordered is not square! It was quite obvious from the first cut. Another consideration is that the aluminum roller guide is not stiff enough to cut more than one sheet without the potential for a curved cut. Maybe this one was defective, because I read many positive reviews about this roller. However, I cannot recommend it based on my experience with it. If you are not after precision 90-degree angle cuts or perfectly straight edges, this may be just what you need. Moreover, I bought this product thinking that, because it can accommodate 18-inch-wide paper, I could accurately measure 8x10 photos. NOT SO! The width ruler only goes to 6 3/8 inches! While this could be easily surmised by reading the dimensions, it isn't clearly stated what the maximum width measurement is.
