But we are still waiting on the larger guillotine (one day!) and the groovy new Deckle Trimmer (also available separately but not due til April ). Sing out if you have questions or want to be notified of its arrival.

About the Trimmer...
The Tim Holtz Guillotine is grey with black, soft cushioned "Kushgrip" handle on the trimming arm to give a comfortable grip for hours of use and less fatigue. The blade is smooth and very sharp to give clean cuts every time.

The measurements start at the cut edge, its not marked right to the edge near the blade but if you're cutting up anything larger than 1.5cm, you'll find it accurate and straight.
The grid marked on the baseboard has popular measurements marked as well, the lines are in .25" increments.
The working space on the baseboard is 8 3/4" x 6 5/8" (but you can go longer than 6 5/8" because there is no ridge on the left hand side. There is a 1.5mm raised guide at the top and bottom edge of the baseboard, next to the rulers.

Features ...
- use for paper and cardstock.
- 6" (15cm) ruler on top and bottom edge of the base
- measurements in both inches and centimetres.
- etched 1/4" grid pattern is marked over the surface of the base.
- guides are along the top and bottom of the base for easy paper alignment.
