Saunders M3 overview

  • 1Description

The 18" Professional M3 Rotary Trimmer from Saunders is designed to cut multiple sheets of paper or paper materials up to 1/8" thick and 18" in length. The trimmers are widely used in many areas of professional work, such as darkrooms, schools, ad agencies, home offices, and in many other areas where cutting paper is involved.

Because safety is a priority with this trimmer, the blade is housed in a die-cast alloy cutting head and is never exposed to your hand. The Comfort Grip is molded to the contours of your hand for a more comfortable hold during repeated cuts. The cutting head, dual steel rails, and the extruded aluminum supports on each end all help to maintain precise alignment. The rotary steel blade self-sharpens every time a cut is made and cuts many types of material, like mounting boards, photographic paper, vinyl, laminates, and card stocks.

The transparent paper guide holds the paper firmly flat against the board, which has a laminated hard top and a silk-screened grid with 1" increments. At the top of the board there is an extruded alignment scale showing both inch and metric measurements. The included Slide Guide attaches to the alignment scale, via the thumb screw, to better position your paper.

    Saunders M3 reviews

    Professional M3 Rotary Trimmer (18") is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, But Not Great I bought this trimmer for use with cutting pre-cut sheets of inkjet paper. It does the job, but is not what I'd call a totally pro device. I had two issues: 1) The ruled lines on the baseboard were not aligned to the ruler edge across the width of the cutter. 2) Even after 100 cuts on a self-sharpening blade, the cutting head did not produce a clean cut. I've owned a few great products from Saunders, but this one did not meet my quality expectations.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not purchase! This trimmer has one job, and it did not do it very well. The product feels solid, but that is the only positive thing. The actual cut was not clean, it left jagged edges. The cut also had a wave to it. Right out of the box it did not perform in any way that it should have.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not cutting well I like the style and ease of this cutter. I especially like that I don't have to lock the paper down with every single swipe of cutting I need to make (on 100 sheets, cut on all sides of the paper, that's 400 times locking and unlocking to make a cut). However the wheel often moves around the paper making an uneven or angled cut, and it does not seem sharp enough as I still get raggedy edges most of the time. I read in the description that this is a self-sharpening cutter so I used it on scrap paper over 100 cuts to try to get it to make a sharper cut. To-date it has not been very successful in doing that. I have saved the box and, if it doesn't improve I will have to return it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Performance I use this cutter for a variety of projects. It is a more convenient and faster method of trimming photo print stock when mount pictures for framing. I avoid having to use a mat cutter for trimming. I also does a great job clean crisp cutting multiple sheets of paper for duplicate documents

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cutter Works well. Will trim extremely fine edges. Easy to cut true corners with no ragged edges. Don't get paper creep as with guillotine cutters. Also don't worry about cutting your fingers with this one.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok, not great Well packed. Easy to setup. No instructions found. Cutting was not perfectly clean , but ok for most purposes. I hope it works in.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap...but DOES NOT beat an X-Acto knife and straight edge. If you're tired of using your X-Acto knife and a straight edge to cut your paper prints and you're ready to pay for a mechanical paper cutter...DON'T buy this rotary trimmer. After completely disassembling and re-assembling this trimmer, sharpening the blade, and in general wasting a lot of still tears and creases almost every piece of paper I've tried to cut with it...ugh!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not waste you money Awful. this trimmer tears pages rather then cuts them when more then 2-3 pages (thin normal paper) are being cut at once. When it does cut the lines cuts wavy, and not a straight cut, also the alignment of the guide is not at 90 degrees to the cutter, making good cuts even more difficult. i read other reviews and ignored them thinking this cant be THAT bad....well it is.
