FastCap Quad Edge Banding Trimmer

Trim both sides of your edge banding perfectly flush with just one easy pass of the FastCap Quad Trimmer.

76% of 100
With four carbon steel cutting edges in just one tool, FastCap's Quad Trimmer is capable of trimming both edges at once, and does so with either a pushing or pulling motion. The trimmer also easily pulls apart so you can trim one edge at a time, which means you can follow the direction of the grain to minimize tear-out if your edge banding has difficult grain. The two halves of the Quad Trimmer are held together by the friction of two O-rings, which also create a pneumatic spring action. This means there are no metal springs to get lost or broken. Replacement blades are readily available (#44653, sold separately) to prolong the life of your edge trimmer. Made in USA.


  • No springs - all pneumatic
  • Cuts both faces in one pass
  • Cuts in both directions
  • Comfortable ergonomic design
  • Carbon steel blades hold an extremely sharp edge
  • Blades are easily replaced with a Phillips screwdriver
  • Trims veneers and edge banding for materials from 1/2" to 1-1/4" thick in double-edge mode
  • Trims materials of infinite width when used in single-edge mode

Fastcap Edge Trimmer
A product like this is a boon to making simple cabinets faced with edging tape. It takes a nice clean cut through the over-sized edge of the tape.

Should tell us to set it up in the middle of the run. Squeeze the tool, hold real tight and go forward. From that end position run it backward.

Successful Project!
I am grateful to the Rockler store manager and his advice on how to save my coffee table with veneer and the edging tool. It worked so well and I’m proud of the finished product!
This is the finished new veneer application.
This is the veneer problem. It loosened and was unsightly.

How thick can the trim be?
John D on Mar 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is designed for the pre-glued veneer or laminate edge bandings, which are all pretty thin, maybe 1/32' or less. Looking at the design of the blades, if you go very much over about 1/16" thick with your edge banding, you'll have a hard time using this trimmer.
Can you cut Formica .?
A shopper on May 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: no you'll need a router for that
The surface I am banding includes outside curves. WIth the trimmer be able to follow the curves?
greenbergman on Oct 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will. It does a nice job. I have used it on tables with rounded corners. It's well worth the money.
does this work on wood veneer?
Mary B on Jan 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This trimmer works "as advertised" on plastic laminate edge bandings. Wood, unfortunately, has a grain direction, so if you look things over, you'll see that you CAN'T go one way and trim both edges without going against the grain on one of those edges. No problem there, just snap the two halves of the trimmer apart, and trim down one edge and back along the other. Bingo! Clean-cut veneer edge banding!
Will it cut the edge banding on curves (e.g. round tables, countertop inside radii)?
SC on Mar 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I am not sure, as I have not tried it on those applications. I would imagine that it would if the surface was within the thickness that it can handle. The maximum thickness it can handle Is 1.5" and that is at the very end of it's range. With a rounded edge, there would still be some filing you'd have to do probably, but it would at least trim the banding down close for you.
So what do you do if you want a miter at the corner of the edge?
Doesn't look like will work at all for that
George D on Mar 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: George, this is a great product for the price. A real time saver. I band all my edges before I assemble my pieces. For $20.00 you can't go wrong.
Can it cut pvc edging?
Mark J on Feb 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Depending on the thickness of the pvc edge banding. I don’t see why it wouldn’t up to 1/32” thickness. I normally use a flush trim bit in my router for pvc.
Can this be upgraded to the tungsten replacement blades?
