This Triumph 4205 paper cutter is a manually operated cutter, equipped with German made Solingen steel blades and polyurethane cutting sticks, both of which are easily changeable or adjusted without having to remove any of the machine covers. Adjusting blade depth is also unproblematic, as alterations can be made from outside the cutter. Cutting is efficient with the Triumph 4205, with its lever-activated, fast-action clamp to secure the paper, and large cut lever that takes 1-1/2 inches of paper with minimal effort when making any type of cut. The spindle-guided back gauge has a calibrated hand crank and measuring scale allowing the user to reposition the gauge with ease. With its compact size to be used as a tabletop cutter or with the optional stand, the Triumph 4205 is a light-weight paper cutter, about 141 lbs, able to be moved and accessed with ease. The Triumph 4205 comes guaranteed with “SCS” (Safety Cutting System) safety features. This Ideal paper cutter is outfitted with two safety covers: a transparent shield located on the front table, which automatically locks before you even begin cutting, and another transparent cover on the rear table. Another vital security feature for the Ideal cutter is the safety notch located on the clamp lever, which locks the blade in the upright position. This Triumph paper cutter, with its quality steel components, ensures safety and reliability every time you make a precise cut.
