    Kaiser 2115 reviews

    2115 AC Illuminated 35mm Film Cutter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Film Cutter, needs switch This is a good little item. It sits nicely on my light table. The action is smooth and it cuts through 35mm film cleanly. There was no documentation on how to use it, so I had to just figure it out, but it wasn't that difficult. Also, there was no on/off switch. It lights up but you have to plug/unplug to work the light, which seems silly. I happened to have an inline switch that I installed myself. The power cord is nice and long so it will reach to an outlet that isn't right nearby. My students like it because they're less likely to accidentally cut through their prized negatives and I like it for the same reason.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cutter... needs some 'splainin' Though instructions NOT included, if you're patient with figuring this puppy out, it is an extremely useful and elegant tool for cutting your 35mm negatives. Feed the film in to the gates on the magnifier side of the device (left side as shown in above picture) and under the sliding cutter cross bar.As you slide the film from left to right, it will stop. Turn the knob and it will then feed the film toward the sliding cutter. When you have the frames lined up midway between shots under the far side (from the feeder end), slide the cutter and observe that it cuts on the far side of the bar- the right side of the device as shown.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great film cutter You can cut film with scissors, but this is better. Gives a precise cut. Light and magnifier let you position the film to cut down middle of film bar. I use it with 35mm film.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kaiser 2115 AC Film Cutter Reviewed on B&H Photo This film cutter is of excellent quality and precision. My need is for a film cutter used to cut half frame film "chips", mostly color positive film, shot in an old Revere Stereo or 3D camera with two lenses. While this unit has size markings for "standard" 35mm frame sizes, the film shot in the Revere results in non-linear frame spacing's, and some of them are immediately located together. This makes the use of the included markings unsuitable for my needs. I need to be able to see these separations clearly in order to cut the "chips" accurately for mounting. As delivered, the internal bulb is positioned under the left side of the cutter, and there is very little light under the right side of the cutter bar where the film is cut. The E-14 incandescent bulb produces a quaint reddish glow similar to a 7 watt "Christmas Tree" night light bulb. This bulb is completely adequate for viewing the film for positioning for cutting. I am looking for a daylight temperature E-14 base LED bulb for replacement. Not really necessary, but ideally the better source for viewing. Now my problem, a personal preference, and requirement for these half frame film chips, is to see clearly, the cutter side of the bar. Additionally, the bulb flickered on and off when handled. In order to analyze and fix this, I began to determine how to open the unit. I thought I detected a screw hole under the product label on the bottom and began to remove it. While handling the unit, it slipped slightly and upon grasping the unit firmly, I discovered the top and bottom are held together by tabs. When I pressed the bottom half tightly it easily came apart. This revealed the inside of the unit and the bulb screw base. It turned out that the bulb was simply loose in the screw base. No problem simply tighten it. This also led to the discovery that by reversing the bottom 180 degrees, that the bulb was under the cutter bar as I needed. In addition, to give more light to the now slightly darker full frame side, I easily removed the bulb screw base and with a fine blade saw, I removed 1/2 inch of the screw base shroud. This resulted in nearly perfect illumination over the entire viewing area. The rubber film advance wheel works fine, but a slight improvement would be a toothed gear, on both sides of the transport bed, and this would result in the most accurate alignment of the film for cutting. The electric cord is about 12 feet long, so you can use the cutter most anywhere imaginable. Bottom line: This is a precise film cutter, but only for 35mm film. It is attractive, well constructed and I expect years of trouble free use. I highly recommend this unit to any one who has the need to cut 35mm film. I'm sure the manufacturers think that anyone with any sense can figure these things out, but a basic instruction sheet and assembly diagram, none is included, would add a measure of confidence. B&H delivered the unit within only a couple of days. They also cheerfully provided me with as much info as they had when I called them to ask questions prior to ordering. Have known about them for years, and should have used them before, and will definitely purchase from them again. John Leynes Saint Johns, Florida

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice, Not Great Would be nice to have an on/off switch and more durable construction. Have only cut a few rolls of film with this machine so far but it has done well with those, can't speak to the long term durability. Perhaps a bit overpriced but still happy to have it around.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Precise instructions missing Expensive but yet usefull. It would be much better if there were clear and precise instructions with it. Trial and error of course makes one ruin good photos.
