The Dahle 556 37-1/2" Professional Rolling Trimmer is a large format trimmer seen in engineering departments, framing shops, galleries and schools around the world. It quickly and effortlessly cuts large workpieces to precise size. Its features include ground upper and lower steel blades along with an automatic paper clamp. The rugged base helps maintain its stability while the clearly marked surface grid gives you precise registration points.

As with all Dahle Rotary Trimmers, safety is ensured by totally enclosing the blade in a plastic housing. For larger pieces (or even for small ones), this trimmer can be wall mounted for even more exact cuts.

    556 Professional Rolling Trimmer (37-1/2") is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great cutter at a good price I print my own photography, so a paper cutter is mandatory. I like the ease of use this unit gives, and the guides built in to the clear plastic strip that holds the paper in place is great for neat, consistent cuts. The down side is if the paper is curled and you aren't careful, the cutter will bash into the edge of the paper and ruin your print. You have to watch it, but not overly so.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my high expectations Purchased for trimming large format photos. Thrilled with the performance. It gives me the impression that I can cut to within a few thousanths of an inch (when attempting to cut right at the edge of a print margin). If I miss, it easily shaves off additional slivers so thin that they look like curly hairs. Seriously, if you have good eyes and good technique, this cutter will exceed any practical accuracy requiremenets that you may have in cutting to the edge of a print. I make the above statement noting that I have had no need for the rules, guide edge or any other features. It has worked equally well for prints from business card and wallet photo size, up to 36 inches. I'm certain that these comments apply to this manufacturer's other trimmer widths as well.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good blade but... Very sharp accurate blade. However two things are causing me to return this.1. The plastic strip that holds the paper in place was bent during shipping. Badly.2. The plastic strip where it is not bent firmly holds the paper but the process of sliding the paper underneath badly scratches glossy paper due to the tight fit. There is nothing that allows you to lift up or adjust the plastic to avoid this problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect cut Best value for the length. As others have mentioned, it only has inches marked on one side (short side) Not a deal breaker but could be useful since that's what I'm used to. Don't spend your money on cheaper brands.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement for worn out trimmer We are a commercial print shop. This new unit replaced the original trimmer we have been using everyday for at least 20 years. It is heavy duty and we trust it will not wear out for another 20 years.
