All Dahle trimmers are individually checked for correct operation before distribution.
When using this trimmer, please adhere to regulations governing the operation of
trimmers and ensure that all safety features are working properly.
This machine has a rotating circular blade which is pulled longitudinally through the
material to be cut. The blade is housed in a plastic cutting head guard for safety.
THIS TRIMMER MUST NOT BE OPERATED IF THE CUTTING HEAD GUARD
IS NOT IN PLACE.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES TOUCH THE EDGE OF THE
CIRCULAR BLADE WITH YOUR HAND
The two horizontal and one vertical scale bars marked on the trimmer table area are calibrated in
inches (1). The photographic size markings and the degrees (together with paper size markings on
the model 500) on the table area are meant as a guide only (2). The machines are provided with a
ground steel circular cutting blade enclosed in a cutting head (3) and an automatic clamp (4).
Operating the trimmer
The machine is able to cut up to 4 sheets of 20# paper in one pass. It can also cut light card, acetates
and other thin materials. Any attempt to exceed the stated single pass capacities could result in
damage to the machine. If you have any doubts concerning the ability of the machine to cut any
particular material then contact our helpdesk for advice.
The rotating circular blade is pulled longitudinally through the material to be cut. The blade housing
is fitted to a support bar along which it runs. The machine will cut in both directions along the
support bar axis.
With the blade housing parked at one end of the support bar, insert the material to be cut underneath
the clear plastic clamp (4). Push the material through until the place that you wish to cut is aligned
with the table area cutting edge. Use the plastic moulding at the top or the bottom of the trimmer (5)
as a guide to ensure that the material is set square to the blade before cutting. For a good quality cut,
even with the thinnest material, it is advisable to pull the blade housing along the cutting support bar
gently and evenly. Moving the blade housing along the support bar automatically engages the plastic
clamp to ensure that the material is held securely in position. Pull the blade housing along the entire
length of the cutting support bar and park it at the opposite end from which you started before
attempting to remove the material you are cutting. The scale bars and table markings can be used to
help achieve an accurate cut.
Changing the blade
The rotating circular blade on Dahle Personal Trimmers is designed to be self sharpening. However,
depending on usage, it is likely that the blade will eventually become blunt. This can be detected by
reduced cutting capacity and greater effort required to run the blade housing along the support bar.
Dahle Personal Trimmers have been designed to ensure that replacement of the blade is a simple
The blade housing support bar (6) is fixed within the side parts of the trimmer. Take out the clip (7),
then pull out the support bar (6) far enough for the blade housing to come off. Slide the new blade
housing* onto the support bar ensuring that it is installed the same way round as the old one (the
rubber wheel inside the blade housing should sit on top of the automatic plastic clamp and the
circular rotary blade should run alongside the metal table area of the trimmer). Now slide the support
bar (6) back in and put the clip (7) back in place.
