five stars! Review by minnesotamom

We've been using this product at work for at least 5 years, and have replaced the blade once. I am certainly not "Mrs Fixit", and I didn't have any problem at all changing out the blade. It does just what we need it to do - cut thru 5 sheets of 20# office paper. Cuts neatly and efficiently, easy to store, straight lines every time, excellent price. The only way it could be better would be if additional replacement blades were available for purchase!! Now that the 2nd blade is getting dull I'll be buying another Compact Personal Trimmer, but I'd rather just get more blades....

Great for small areas Review by sambo59

I keep this on my desk for quick craft trimming and it is perfect for that because of its size. Does a great job too.

This trimmer does exactly what it is supposed to do. It cuts accurately and safely. I've used mine for several years without any trouble or any sign that the blade is getting dull. I cut various weights of paper and photos.

Welcome to MyBinding video. This is how to change the blade on the Swingline SmartCut Compacy 12" personal trimmer. First, slide the blade into the center of the trimmer. From the center of the rail, pull one side away from the blade. Then grasping the blade, pull the other side of the rail the opposite direction and pull up. This will give you enough space to wiggle out the blade. Take your new blade and make sure to remove the plastic cap and we're going to do just about the same thing. Pull both ends away from each other and at the same time lift one end up. Fit the blade against the end you pulled up then wiggle the blade down into place. Slide it back and forth to make sure it's all the way in. Here it is again from a different angle. The goal is to create enough space between the two ends of the rail so that the blade has enough room to come out. So it's pull away, pull up and remove. Placing the new one is pull away, pull up, place it into the side and down, all the while pulling the two ends away from each other and often times that little extra wiggle will help it go into place. And now you've just placed your new blade. For more demos, reviews and how-to's, go to MyBinding.com.

Swingline 1112 SmartCut Compact Personal Trimmer Review

Swingline makes great staplers and they also manufacture some of the best paper cutting tools on the market. One of their cutters designed for personal use is their 1112 SmartCut Compact Personal Trimmer. This is a good device for occasional use, especially if you want to use it for creative purposes. Here’s some information about it, including how it rates on a scale of 1 to 10.

  • The 1112 only has a 5-sheet cutting capacity. This is a decent capacity if you’re just going to be using this device occasionally for personal use (i.e. crafts). However, if you think you’ll need to cut more paper at once on a regular basis, you should choose a trimmer that can cut more sheets at a time.
  • This trimmer can cut sheets of paper that are up to 12 inches long. This is a great length for smaller sheets of paper, including those that are letter-sized (8.5” x 11”). You can use this device to trim a number of items including correspondence, artwork, ticket stubs, photographs, and more.
  • The 1112 was designed to be portable. It weighs less than a pound so you can transport it around easily. It isn’t too big either, since it’s only about 12 inches long and a few inches wide. You can store this trimmer just about anywhere, such as your desktop or even in a drawer if you want to keep it out of the way.
  • This trimmer has an alignment grid on it so you’ll be able to measure your paper before cutting it. There are also two rulers so you can use whichever measurement system you prefer whether it’s metric or standard. The paper guide is transparent so you can keep an eye on your work as you go.
  • Although this product is made out of plastic, it’s surprisingly durable so you’ll be able to get a lot of use out of it. And it comes with a replacement blade so you’ll have one handy when the initial blade becomes too dull to use.
  • The 1112 is affordable. You should be able to get it for less than $20.00, so it’s great if you’re on a budget. Also, it comes with a 1-year warranty so you can get it fixed or replaced if you need to.

Final rating: 9.  For what it is, the Swingline 1112 SmartCut Compact Personal Trimmer is terrific. This product was designed to be a portable, smallish cutter and it’s definitely that. It’s lightweight, small enough to store in a drawer, and it has features to ensure you’ll get the right cut, such as the transparent paper guide and the alignment grid. This trimmer is also very affordable and it has a decent warranty as well. While it can’t cut large sheets or paper or big stacks of them, over all the 1112 is a good choice if you need a simple cutter for personal use. If so, take a look at this product today. You’re going to be glad you did.

Q:
What is the heaviest stock that this trimmer will cut?
Asked by Matt M. 11 months ago
A:
This unit will handle most thicknesses of card stock and paper. I wouldn't really suggest it for materials such as plastic, cardboard or chipboard as this is a personal unit and not constructed for heavy duty cutting.
