Are there any affordable card trimmers on the market that will do everything from short cards to belly strippers to short and narrow? I canít drop $500 or $3500 I just want to experiment. I was hoping to stay around $100 or less. I know they had a Line-Lo; but, it seems like thatís not manufactured anymore. I would like to use a cutter with a template so I know every cut is perfect. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Brian.

I made one a few years back for about $20 (with 60% off any one item coupons, and a few trips to JoAnn Fabrics). It has served me very well.

I've made Riser's Inexpensive Card Trimmer as well, works great for the ~$30 Aud it cost.

Through me... He's a very close friend.

I can tell you that he does still have some of the old cutters in storage, but getting him to go get them out is going to cost some money.
He's also working on a new version right now, believe it or not. This one involves the round draw blades instead of the chopper style.
He's almost done with it, but he's not going to release it until it's right. Which I have no idea when that is.

I also made my own card trimmer with a hobby shop trimmer which replacable blades (£8) a steel rule (50p) 4 N52 magnets (£2.80) a metal angle (30p) and a corner round cutter (£5).

So for £16.60 I make my own decks as I have found that unless I pay a decent price a lot of gaffed decks have poor finishes to the corners or are not genuine Bicycle decks.
Given that I can get Bicycle decks for just over £1 it has made total economical sense.

I asked, he said "He does have some old ones, and they are $125, and the new ones will be out by August."

His old ones are like the guillotine paper cutters.

Does he have a price on his new one and the types of cuts it can make?

No on the price... But it does the same as his old one... Strippers, edge strippers, short cards, and belly cards. That's all I know of.

I saw the finished product of Brian's new card trimmer. It's really nice. Here are some highlights...
It can do normal or super fine. In other words, you can make a standard stripper deck, or you can make one that is super fine.
It only uses one template for all the different cuts it can do. The different cuts it can do is, stripper, end stripper, belly, end belly, narrow, short, all can be done both regular and super fine. You can get replacement blades at the craft store. It's made from PVC, except for the cutter shuttle, it's polished aluminum.
He's about ready to put it out...

What price do you think they should go for?

What kind of price do you think is fair?
That's what holding him back, he's trying to find a price where he can make money, but it's not be too expensive.

I couldnít even tell you as I donít know the cost of materials or time involved in making one of these. If you care to share this information then I can tell you what a fair rate would be. For me, $100 would be the most I would want to pay as I am not a professional or perform gigs on a regular basis. I am a creator and this like to experiment with new ideas.

Check out Lybrary.com. Itís not just for downloads. I bought a corner rounder for $15 from them. It has several sizes. One Matches poker decks corners for making short cards/ Svengalis. Another larger letís you make corner short card, or trim jumbo decks.

https://www.lybrary.com/corner-rounder-1......406.html

I use it with a rotary cutter my wife has.

You can buy this on amazon for cheaper. I have 2 of them. In fact, thatís probably what these people did and slapped an upcharge on them.

I think what we were more looking for a card trimmer for making short cards, belly cards, stripper, etc.

That is not what we do. We source these directly from the manufacturer from Japan. The price is a result of our cost sourcing these from Japan. As every of our products, it also comes with our personal support and service.
