Need your recommendations

I squished my Cutterpede paper trimmer. Actually, I broke the extending ruler over a year ago. Yesterday, I broke the hinge on the plastic guide thingy that the blade fits onto. It's still usable, but not so easy to use now. So I'm in the market for a new one. One that can take the beating I apparently give to paper trimmers. :) What do you guys use? Or recommend? I can't buy a new one until I get my paycheck, so I have plenty of time to shop around.

I have CAD (computer aided drafting) training Monday and Tuesday of this week. Boo for day 1 being on MLK day. Yay for day 2 being on a school day! :) I'm a total geek for CAD stuff, and I've never had a good software program for my classroom. For $350 and two days of training, I get 300 seats of Pro/Engineer (the CAD program) for my school! I've been using Google Sketchup, which is great as far as free programs go. But I'm so excited about this.

Okay, my geek moment has passed. :) Have a great day!
