I have had my 12x12 magnetic making memories paper trimmer for years now. I loved it but its now freying my paper. So time for a new one, I guess! Anyone have any suggestions? I want a rotary one that can stay on my counter, not a little pack and go one.

Thanks for your help!

I am i the same boat as you... but, I took my MM trimmer apart and cleaned it off carefully, both the blade and the area where the blade runs through... it had tons of paper and such stuck in there... put it back together again and it works like new... well, other than the part where my daughter broke my plastic piece and I glued it back together again... I am up and running again for at least a little bit longer.

I just replaced my making memories cutter that I've had forever. I got a Fiskars procision. So far I really like it. I have only used it for a couple if days but it cuts straight and smooth.

It is a challenge to find one that cuts straight! I have a bunch and so far the cheapest from Fiskar is the best! Good luck!

I love my Fiskars trimmers. I have several of them ... from Old Gray, up to the ones with the wire guide. I love the wire guide the most -- especially the largest one -- but the are all good. And .. Fiskars is an excellent company that stands by their products!

I recently got the Fiskars Procision trimmer and I really like it. It's a desk top rotary trimmer.

Right now I'm suing the Fiskars trimmer with the wire, and it's pretty good. But I tell you, one of these days I am going to save up and get the Cadillac of trimmers- the Genesis! Course I'll probably be old and gray by the time that happens

Genesis. I love mine. Pricey, but worth it if you want perfectly straight cuts. Best thing I ever bought for scrapbooking.

I recently bought the trimmer that you are wanting to replace, from Joann's (online). I didnt realize that they were Out of Business when I bought it. But I really really love it!
