My Newest Toy – 6′ Magnesium Straight Edge

This just arrived in the mail today. It’s used when table-trimming the selvedge edge off of un-trimmed wallpaper, which are almost always the higher-end brands. The straight edge will also come in handy when trimming grasscloth, removing banged edges, or cutting a piece to fit into a corner.

The thick sides help keep your razor blade straight, which ensures a straight cut, and the magnesium won’t mar the paper, as aluminum or steel can.

The tricky part is cutting strips that are longer than 6,’ the length of the straight edge, because once you move the tool to cut the next 6,’ you have to be VERY careful to keep everything lined up and absolutely straight.

    Looks like $83 very wisely spent, given the cachet it will add to the already-compelling list of reasons that you’re the go-to paperhanger of choice in the Houston area for discerning customers!
