To clip or not to clip...
« on: August 31, 2016, 08:38:15 AM »
So - who's for clipping?

I like clipping and, in fact, wish to god I could get a hold of those proper clippers you can get. Apparently no-one in the UK likes clipping because they don't sell them anywhere.

I have to do my clipping with a modelling knife which takes some effort and time.

Do you have spare clippers you want to get rid of?  :2funny:

I have a 2.5mm clipper. My counters have never looked better!

That's the one I have, just the 2.5mm version.

The kerthunk sound it makes, as each corner is rounded to perfection, is indeed soothing.

Always clip. I cannot guess how many thousands of counters I clipped with an xacto knife.  The clipper I later bought looks nothing like those in the first post.

I long ago relinquished my soul. Now I have perfectly trimmed counters and laminated charts. And bliss.

Don't be a scuzz.  Trim that fuzz!


I have the Deluxe 2.5mm corner trimmer.  It has made my trimming more even & efficient.

I'm still looking for a program that will clip all of my Vassal module counter corners.  >:D
