My setup for roll paper is cheap and works well. I made a holder for the roll similar to the metal counter type but mine is made from a wooden dowel and plywood for the support stands. I have a small darkroom so I lay a piece of plywood with a wooden yard stick screwed to one edge from my wet side to my dry side. I roll out the paper to the size I want and use a metal door threshold and razor knife to cut. To take the curl out Freestyle sold cardboard mailers up to 24 x 30 with the black inner bag. Cut up what you need a day or two ahead of time and it's all flat when you want it.
Yes, indeed. However, if you re-roll the amount of paper you've pulled out before you cut then you will not have to drag the aforementioned large, unwieldly widths of dangerously curly paper around sharp cardboard where it might have it's gentle emulsion scratched or, god forbid, deliver a paper cut or maybe something worse - I don't know:blink:... not to mention keeping the dust off the unexposed sheet of paper.
