    Now that I've gotten to try this for a while I have to say that I think it's awesome. I wasn't sure at first because I was a little confused on how to measure with it. It's set up different than my fiskars trimmer. What I love about the rotary cutter half is that it holds the paper down so it can't slip out and that way you get a really straight cut. Also, little fingers can't get in it which is great with my 3-year old around. The other side you can also hold the paper down, but it doesn't lock it in place like the rotary side. The guiloteen (sp?) bar locks, too, for safety and cuts very straight. It is also a nice feature that the two sides separate so you can take the rotary side with you to a crop or wherever. I definetly recommend this trimmer - it's the best one I've tried.

    Thanks for sharing your review with us. It sounds really neat. Any idea how much it retails for?

    I think it's about $70 suggested retail, but I've seen it a lot lower online. I can't recall which sites. I think Joanns sells them online, too.

    My sister has one and she loves it. I was with her when she bought it; I was a little skeptical and I passed on it. I think she got a good deal. I'm kicking myself.

    I was just looking at getting a new trimmer, I have just the fiskars trimmer with the swing arm. It works but I want something better. I will have to look into prices and if anyone has one in town.

    Tahanks for sharing!!

    I was wondering... does the Purple Cow cut a true 90 degrees? It seems that my fiskars doesn't. I also have a Carl rotary. It's a little better at 90 degrees but I think it's a little off.

    Mine has cut fine so far. My fiskars seems to sway along the line so it may be straight starting out, but then flares out a little near the end of the cut. This one has like a grip that locks the paper down and then you cut and then you have to unlock it to let the paper out. That's on the rotary side. The other side is just like a regular guiloteen (sp?) cutter. It doesn't have an actual blade.
    The rotary also has a perforator and a wavy cutter that you can put into it very easily. I also have the Purple Cows Laminator/Trimmer and the Freestyle which I haven't played enough to give a review. I won them all.

    Just FYI - Joann's online has this on sale for $49 plus another 20% off with an online only coupon. If you are in the free shipping club, it's a pretty good deal. Unfortunately, I'm not so it's another $10 for shipping.

    So I think I'll keep looking for a new paper trimmer...

    They need to do something about the shipping costs. I would order so much more online if shipping was more reasonable.

    I had heard about this product but guess I never saw a good picture of it. I liked what I saw!! I went on line at Joann's it was on sale and I got 20% of one item so it was $24.?? and shipping but when you live where I do and no stores it's worth the gas...LOL.

    Can't wait till it comes in. I love my cutter but have needed to up grade so I hope this is what I'm wanting. It's one of the basic tools I use on every lo.

    Thanks for the info.
