    Hello! I desperately need to replace the cutting stick on my old manual Challenge paper cutter, and I’ve never bought a new one before . It measures 25.5 inches long and is about 1.2 inches square. Everything I’m finding online for a Challenge is 1/2 inch square. Am I missing something? Does anyone have a resource for the cutting stick I need?

    Cut a 1/2 x 1/2 inch slot into the wooden stick. If you place it right you may get 2 cutting surfaces out of each plastic surface.

    Cutting sticks are often sold by the same folks who sharpen blades. Have you asked them?

    My cutter would also take a 1.25″ square cutting stick–but a friend did what Arie is suggesting, and made a kind of “holder” out of 1.25″ wood, and you can fill it in with .5 or .75″ plastic sticks.

    If your blade sharpening folks don’t offer sticks, I get mine from American Printing Equipment http://www.americanprintingequipment.com/cuttingsticks.aspx You do not have to search by brand name–just the actual size of your stick.
