The clipper + shipping to FL was $39.96, so I came out $0.04 ahead. The clipper will arrive in ~3 weeks, the new VISA card about the same. The former will be carried back to China in my wife's cousin's luggage, and the latter will be canceled immediately upon receipt.

Hard to argue with Chase Bank paying me $0.04 to try out that counter clipper!

What! They only gave me $30 for the same card application! yuk

I actually plan to use my new card for two purchases prior to cancellation though. shake


I got $50 amazon credit whistle. huzzah!


Closing accounts can (but not always) effect your credit rating. So does an inquiry to approve you for the credit in the first place.

True, but opening an account years before my next home purchase, using that card a couple of times, paying it off and never using it again can effect my credit rating positively.

hey all, as the grandfather of this thread (I posted the "One handed friendly counter clipper?" thread), I decided to show you how this product works for me with a demo video!

Check it out here: http://boardgamegeek.com/video/15027/miscellaneous-game-acce...

I finally broke down and bought a pair. I must say they rock.

I clipped rectangular counters from War at Sea (third edition)... perfect. And I clipped Band of Brothers: Screaming Eagles both the larger 3/4 troop counters and the 1/2 marker counters. Perfect.

Some notes:

1. I hold it the normal way not upside down. I had no problem setting the counter and clipping. (I don't even look... I can feel the force)
2. Occasionally I would get some resistance and it would not clip the corner well. In this case I would flip to the other side and re-clip. No problem. I believe this was caused by a remnant of cardboard trimming being stuck in the chamber.
3. If you use regular strength I did not get tired, it doesn't actually a lot of force to cut.
4. One minus is the screw nuts holding the die have come loose so watch out as the nuts may fall off (although the whole screw would have to come out before you would need to be concerned).

Overall best and reasonably quick way of clipping counters!

Recommended.

We won't kill you for clipping because... well, you've read the rest of this thread.

For Celebrity Apprentice, now that's different story...

There was a time when the genus of wargamers was divided in two species: clippers and non-clippers. Now some individuals of the clipper species evolved in a third species, definitely the worse one: the re-clippers! (And I'm one of them, of course)

Sigh. Now I see this. I ordered a c4 to tackle my lock n load stuff, but I like the rounded look way better. I guess I'll just wait and become one of those 2mm upstarts!

I think I will stay in the middle: I'm sure I'll use the 2mm for 1/2" counters and the 3mm for counters larger than 5/8". I'm undecided on 5/8" counters: I've always clipped my counters just a bit, but after using my new tool on Fuentes de Onoro 1811 I don't know anymore: it looks terrific like this...

I'm just curious. Has anyone told Russ over at the Oregon Laminations Company why we want a 2 mm version? Or, even for that matter why the sudden little surge in sales for the 3 mm tool. I'm wondering if he finds it amusing.

So, the 2 mm version of the tool is going into production "next week" "overseas" and is expected back in North America in "late May."

Cool! Thanks for the info! I've been holding off on clipping 1/2" counters, I think they'll be much better with the 2mm cutter. I think 3mm is perfect for anything larger than that.
