 Tip clipping machine

I’m considering ordering a tip clipping machine. I have a dystonic tremor and I’m becoming less and less comfortable using a knife or razor blade with a cutting block. Does anyone have experience with one that they would or would not recommend?

I tried a couple of different ones...one was a Pestini, that I did not really care for, and the other is a Reeds 'N Stuff which I very much prefer. ...........it is easy to use and has a scale which helps enormously. This is what I used now and I would not go back to using a razor blade.

I have used the Rieger tip cutter for at leas 15 years. and I am very happy with it. I has never lost it's sharpness and accuracy.
Some people like it because since it is a cylindrical cutter one side is very slightly shorter. I don't see much of a difference but people that play american style reeds like that. Any way you always check which side is better down or up.
I also would not go back to cutting on a block.
