    Carl DC-250 reviews

    DC-250 25" Heavy Duty Rotary Disk Cutter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for Photo Trimming I've been trimming 330GSM Epson Hot Press and getting clean cuts. 25 length is handy for larger sheets from my Epson 3880. The narrow width of the base is a mixed blessing; it's easier to store than my old 24 guillotine cutter but paper does flop off the back. This is not a major issue since the paper clamp is quite effective.I might argue that the clamping mechanism could be improved since you must grip and lift to release it. That's not a comfortable motion if you have some artheritis in your hand.Overall, I'm very happy with this and find it an excellent value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cutter I needed a larger rotary cutter to cut the larger photos that I can now print on my large format printer. B&H shipped this out but UPS damaged it in shipping. The cutter bar was totally broken off of the base unit. B&H sent out a UPS no charge shipping label and I sent it back. I was somewhat upset that they didn't send the replacement until they received the broken one, but the wait was worth it. This cutter is very precise. The lock down pressure bar holds everything in place, but a very nice touch is the magnetic bar for added security. The unit came with a spare blade, a perforating blade and cutting pad. Markings on the table are very precise. Great unit and not too expensive for what it does.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Dute and Fine Tuned. We cut photos - 13 x 19 - every day. We are happy with the results and the accuracy of this cutter. No slippage and easy to get the cut line where we want it. It is a step up from our previous cutter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rotary Cutter After searching for a rotary cutter to trim my 17x22 fine art prints, I settled on this trimmer. The rail that holds down the materials to be cut can be raised allowing the the prints to be positioned carefully and without scratching the printed surface. Simple to use and accurate. My only con is that it's not exceptional at super fine detail. If I need to trim just a slight amount (1-3mm) the blade follows the already cut edge. Not a huge con.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good deal I've had a Carl 15 cutter for about ten years. Excellent and inexpensive. The 25 is better in a couple of ways. The steel frame is superior to the lightweight plastic on my 15 It stays put on the tabletop. The clamp mechanism is also better. B&H price is 1/2 compared to Staples, add free shipping and this is a super deal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best I'll lead off with the only -- the only -- negative: I'd love it even more if the base were wider. A 25 width would make it perfect. Other than that, it's one of the best designed products of any kind I've ever bought, from the FULL-LENGTH clamping bar to the dead-accurate markings to the razor-sharp cutting the onboard storage for cutting blades and mats. I've cut everything from bond to mat board, and it handles them all. Multiple pieces aren't a challenge -- you just have to make sure you do enough passes with the blade. I bought some extra cutting and perforating (!) blades, as well as a couple of scoring (!) blades. All work perfectly, and all of them (plus two extra cutting mats) fit into the onboard storage compartment (in addition to the two extra blades and one extra mat that came with the cutter). I'm printing photos on 24-wide, and this cutter has been a life-saver. The magnetic guide makes lining up cuts a snap, and the clean cut edges are indistinguishable from the other original edge of the paper. Don't look any further. This is it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Print Trimmer Carl makes a fantastic trimmer. It is probably my favorite item for prints as well as any other use. Easy to get replacement blades for.
