Score, trim


Nearly foolproof
The Fastback from Powis Parker <www.powis.com> prevents more user errors than others I have seen. It perfectbinds paperbacks with double-sided tape. It is first heated to glue the pages and again to glue the cover in place.

Scorer and trimmer

Scorer · The best I have seen is another foolproof design from Powis Parker. It costs $400. Scoring a cover takes less than 10 seconds.

yTrimmer · A good second-hand trimmer costs about $1200. A laser guide isn't as important as a strong clamp. If your book shifts even slightly under the blade, the cut won't be true.
