Thanks for the information Guys! I am putting a deposit on a Sankyo 800 shortly and can use the Eumig Trimmer with it -- which I had to purchase because it didn't come with the projector; I was lucky to find one that was new old stock.

I trim my leaders with the Elmo (semicircular) trimmer. Years ago I noticed that my Eumig machine accepted the Elmo cut, but the Elmo wouldn't take the Eumig cut (angled: like #1).
I guess you might say that since the Elmo wouldn't compromise, it won!
I guess you cut it whichever way is going to cause you to retrim as little as possible. If nothing else it's a pain and leaves these inch long scraps of film that seem to show up everywhere in this house. (How on Earth do they get upstairs?!)
