Here in the Nordics we only clip counters :timeout: But we do that with vengeance  :smitten:

 O:-)

... I mean, why would you clip mapboards? Makes no sense.

I had a 3mm Oregon Laminations counter clipper that I think I lost in my move. I'd like to get another one but am not sure. 3mm was a bit large but okay for my purposes. Maybe a 2.5mm? Anyone have a 3mm counter clipper and downsize by chance?

My 3mm is still working just fine, although it needs an occasional lubing.   ;)

It shouldn't crap out on me for a long time, but if I were to do it again I would get the next smaller size.  Had intended to do so the first time, but they were out of stock, or something, at the time.

Thanks, Nef. That's what I was thinking, too, go a bit smaller so if I clip my older games it won't look so pronounced. 'Preciate it.  O0

I think the 3mm is fine for most modern counters of regular or large size.  I still occasionally run into the smaller ones, though, and it's just on the edge of too much.  I think the 2.5mm (or is the next smaller size a 2?) would be perfect for all of them.

I went ahead and ordered the 2.5mm. If my 3mm shows up eventually then I at least have some counter circumcising diversity.
