> in that case wouldn't it be easier just to do it with a Rivas (straight cut - modified for cutting on the frame line) ?

no, no, no. personal preference not withstanding, the guillotine is sweet because the tape crosses the film whereas the revas is placed by hand, often resulting in tape that falls over the edge.

and is this not related to the problem that initiated this thread in the first place; sloppy tape edges? 'tis easy to circumvent:

as i mentioned earlier, simply using a hand-held (single-edged!) blade to swipe on either side of the film AGAINST THE EDGE of the guillotine's metal channel, is super quick and clean.

your bambino's bambina will have a nice close shave. or bikini wax be as it may...
