My QCM-1200E Heavy Duty Paper Cutter

I'M IN LOVE!!! I know you're tuning in today NOT wanting to see pictures of a paper cutter, but I just had to share this! My QCM-1200E Heavy Duty Paper Cutter arrived last week and I'm in heaven! It's so heavy, I can barely pick it up! It weighs 36 pounds - and I'm not kidding! There was no way I could put it together, so my husband did! As you can see, he's grimacing while putting "the thing" together! It was tedious - the measurements had to be adjusted and then readjusted to get them just right, but once it's finished, IT'S FABULOUS! I've always cut two pieces of paper at a time with my Stampin' Up! tabletop cutter, which I absolutely love - and for small jobs or for an individual's card-making use, it's perfect; however, I cut MEGA amounts of paper on a regular basis and it will be nice to cut down on the amount of time it takes! One of my friends, Jill Hilliard, was kind enough to share this information with me and I immediately purchased a QCM-1200E! Thank you, Jill, you've changed my life! Here's "the thing" in my office! It's not pretty, it takes up a lot of room, and it smells like a piece of machinery right next to me, but when I placed 50 sheets of card stock in it and cut through all of them at once - and it cut through it like butter, I didn't care what it smelled like! I'm a happy camper right now! My upcoming Christmas Card Workshop where we make 1,500 to 2,000 Christmas cards? No problem! It will be a cinch to cut all that paper. Another amazing thing is that my QCM-1200E cuts so precisely - there's no arch to the paper - it's perfectly straight! I'M IN LOVE WITH MY QCM-1200E! Just thought I'd share!

Oh, yes, this bad boy is my new best friend! I was able to cut all of the card stock for my Christmas Card Workshop (which was card stock for 1,500 cards) in five hours! It would have taken me several days otherwise! I'M IN LOVE!

I am curious about this cutter. I bought a different brand one years ago used it 3 times and it now sits there. Spent the same on it. The bar the paper sits against had a gap so the paper got stuck under that and when I cut the stack of CS (did not matter how many sheets) the top sheet always got crinkled. ALSO, even though it had the holder so the cs was held taught-the stack still shifted and I wasted so much money on CS. Have always wanted a different but now am too scared.
