    i would assume that can be done with a chop saw with a fine tooth blade, after wrapping the roll with several layers of tape

    In my area I have a company called Kraft wrap which makes and cut rolls of kraft and butcher paper. I used to take 54" rolls of vinyl and have them cut into various widths. precise and economical. check in your area and see if you can locate a converter

    takeup reel set to run and a sharp box cutter. I guess a steady hand helps...

    laminator take-up reel with homemade clamp on box cutter slicer. Works like a champ. Also used to trim off excess laminate from edge of rolled prints.

    We used to use a 96 tooth blade with our chop saw, but found an 8 tooth hardy board blade works much better and gives a cleaner cut.

    I had our print/laminating tech walk me thru the process. It's not as user friendly as I thought. Seems you have to physically hold the apparatus in place braced against wherever you set the position of the roll bump stop.
