Description of the Martin Yale Premier PolyBoard P218X Paper Trimmer

Cutting large sheets of paper or card stock is never simple, and especially when it is more of a trimming activity than a true cutting procedure.

The 1/2" grid marks make it extremely useful for accuracy and alignment, and the English and metric rulers are great guides for good cuts too. At nine pounds in total weight, this is a substantial trimmer that can handle up to ten pages at a time.

The Premier P218X Paper Trimmer also keeps safety in mind at all times with an assortment of features, including a no-skid rubber feet on the bottom of the cutting bed, a torsion spring mechanism that locks the blade in the open position to eliminate risks of the blade falling during paper alignment, and a patented locking latch that clicks into position after each cut is done.
