Hi Ladies, I’m looking to purchase a dependable corner rounder to use with Crane Lettra. It seems as if every rounder I try either eats up the paper, or leaves grease marks on it. Has anyone had success with their corner rounder and if so, where did you find it?

Hi there, I find myself in the same boat. Up til now I have only used hand-punches, without good results on any stock, really. I have tried several different brands. I am considering investing in a Lassco CR-20 Cornerounder Corner Cutter, which I have seen for as low as $89 on ebay and other sites. Apparently you can purchase dies with different corner radiuses, which is cool. I’d love to know if anyone on here would vouch for its reliability or recommend a different one before purchasing?
I have a Lassco 50B. It has a wood base and is much sturdier than the CR20’s I have used. It works fine (not any better or worse). Nothing beats a die when it comes to corner rounding!! I am starting to build a library of rounded corner dies in standard sizes. Takes less time and is a lot easier on my carpal tunnel!
I too have the Lassco cr20 and simply LOVE it. My workshop participants go crazy rounding corners when they realize it takes many sheets of Lettra and so smooth. I also used hand punches, that I even tried using my foot to “round” Lettra 220…. ha, ha, ha, it was not a fun experience! Good Luck
