I've been having a problem with my Rotatrim. It's an older model from the late 80's but with very light useage. It's been tearing a small chip off the end corner of the paper cut. I'm talking about cutting fiber paper. I push the cutter to the top when cutting. Sometimes it also leaves a jagged cut with small chips off the edge of the print. A friend said he had the same problem and thinks it was over fixing. Watching his fix times better stopped it. I use Ilford Universal which is not a harding fix. Any truth to over fixing causing this cutting problem? Anyone else seen this problem? It's not every cut but often enough to be troublesome. I use gloves and hold the print in place with my hand when cutting.
My blade looks clean but I thought I'd take it off anyway to check. Is the proper removal to take off the nut and push the shaft out the other side? I see you can buy new cutter blades from B&H.
Also when you park the head for storage should it be at one of the ends where the medal cutting edge is not present?
Thanks for any help.
