Re: Time to guillotine



Hi! Had to comment on the Martin Yale- I had to return the one I bought
because it simply fell apart on me.  The clamp eventually wouldn't wheel all
the way down, a very necessary bolt ( I don't remember which) became
stripped due to my having to adjust so frequently, the knife also wouldn't
cut all the way through, etc.. Martin Yale insists it can handle heavy use,
but that is so misleading. I say that it is fine for cutting materials 1/2"
or less ONLY. This sales pitch they give that the cutter handles a ream
easily is wrong. The cutter handles the ream for about a week- then all you
have is a cutter that is out of adjustment and proceeds to fall apart when
you try to fix it.
Sorry for the bad report.  Having read your past posts, you strike me as one
who wants good value and service for the money. This is not your cutter.

With a new project I am working on, it is time to buy a guillotine paper
cutter. The Martin-Yale M7000 looks pretty good for the price. Any
experience
out there with it? Comments?
