Thank you very much for your questions and we are happy to answer your questions regarding the ClassicCut Lite Paper Trimmer. This item does have a 13"W x 19"L board that uses a 12" cutting blade arm. Here is how the self-sharpening blade works. As the sharpening blade comes down to cut the paper it makes contact with the board and the board has a metal edge that will sharpen the blade.
The Classic Cut Lite Paper Trimmer is considered a light weight trimmer and we would recommend to someone who is cutting a couple of pages or pictures. Perfect for someone who is scrapbooking.
Swingline is an excellent brand. They have been making trimmers for over 35 years, we have been an authorized deal with them for 8 years, and we have thousands of customers who love their products. They also have a great 10 year warranty on all their parts, except in the case of the trimmer, the blades are not covered under their manufacturer warranty.
I looked around for several of the Swingline items that I would recommend and I will explain my recommendations.
1. The Classic Cut Pro Paper Trimmer. It is a 18" x 18" trimmer, has an 18" cutting arm. Has the same features as the other ClassicCut Lite Trimmer. Plus it is considered a "commercial grade" because it is more sturdy, and made for heavy use.
2. The Classic Cut Laser Trimmer . This trimmer is 12" x 15" and has a 15" cutting arm. Commerical grade, same safety features as above. The main difference is that it is a little smaller and it does have a laser guide to help you with your cutting.
3. Finally, if you are not "in-love" with any of my choices here are all our "Paper Cutters and Paper Trimmers." I am going to give you a great helpful tip. Go to the attributes on the right hand side because you can narrow your choices by amount of paper you are cutting, size of the base, cut length, etc. I am sure you know that you get what you pay for anything, and paper trimmers are no exception. I hope that you pick a good one and it stays with you for a long time!
I hope that you find this reply helpful. Sorry about the delay with the reply, we were swamped after the Memorial Day orders! Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you and we appreciate your great questions.
