On the day of the supreme Bookboard-o-rama, I talked about the arrival of a ginormous amount of bookboard. I was really excited because the sheets were slightly larger than my last purchase, which meant that there was potential for getting more covers from each board.
DrRuss asked me the following:
Do you cut the sheets in half and then use the KT or do you cut to size from the big sheets.
I replied that I cut everything with my my Kutrimmer 1071 and didn’t need to do any cutting by hand.
Since then, my bookboard bliss has been shattered.
The size of my new board is too wide for my Kutrimmer, which can only accommodate sheets that are up to 28.5″ in length. I am heartbroken.
I have 170 sheets of board that I can’t cut with my board shear.
I am now obsessed with acquiring a Kutrimmer 1080.
It has a cutting length of up to 31.25″ and would work on my new bookboard. It has a foot pedal for clamping and a fold-down table extension to support large pieces. And it has legs, therefore making it easier for me to anthropomorphize it.
And it’s pretty and shiny.
And it has a price tag of $1,664.00.
Dear Magical Bag of Money,
Please hurry up and get here. I need to buy a new Kutrimmer.
