Lassco CR-50B Corner Rounder Review

Lassco-Wizer CR-50B Cornerounder / Corner Roundre / CutterDo you need to cut and trim the corners off of hundreds of sheets of paper at a time? This may be for creating cards, business cards and other projects. If this sounds like something you need to do, you may want to consider looking at the Lassco CR-50B corner rounder (found here). I have had the opportunity to use this little machine on several occasions and this is my review.

The Conerounder line from Lassco-Wizer is one of the most popular lines of corner rounders around. This includes the popular CR-20 and the CR-50B, which I am going to review. Lassco-Wizer also makes a wide range of other floor and desktop corner rounders, which you can find here.

To begin with, the CR-50B is a beefed up CR-20. A few of the improvements include a wider base, for larger paper, and a slightly longer handle. These improvements make the CR-50B ideal for more continuous, daily use.

The CR-50B uses special cutting dies to cut the corners off of paper. These dies come with different sizes of blades for different radius cuts. The corner rounder comes with your choice of several different corner cutting dies. Additional dies can be purchased and used.

Changing the dies on the CR-50B is very easy. The die fits in the base of the CR-50B like a socket. Simply lift the handle, pull the die out and push another die into the open socket. This process may seem simple, but it ends up being very stable. This is much easier than many other competitors that require you to use a tool to swap dies.

The table measures in at 9″ x 18″, making it very easy to cut letter-size and larger paper. This is a nice improvement over other corner rounders that have small bases. If the base is too small, paper will flop over the edge, making it hard to square-up the paper for cutting.

The CR-50B can cut through a stack of paper up to ½” thick. This can be standard copy paper or thicker card stock. I have even used this to round the corners on laminated paper without any issues. The cutting process is very easy, with the handle leveraged in such a way that very little effort is needed.

The CR-50B weighs in at 9 pounds, making it very light and easy to move around. Don’t let the light weight trick you into thinking it’s cheap. The build quality on this corner rounder is excellent.

Overall I consider the CR-50B to be one of the best (if not the best), manual tabletop corner rounders on the market. It is solid, easy to use and I love the option of being able to swap out cutting dies.
