We have one of those machines in at work. It can cut an entire ream of
paper at once, and I had asked about cutting a roll of paper once (for
teletype tape) and they said that it wouldn't be a problem, provided
that the roll wasn't huge, and that the core of the roll was cardboard
or paper (not metal). If you bought some thermal fax paper, you should
be able to find some place that can trim it for you (maybe Kinkos's?).
Most fax paper is in pretty small rolls of about 2 inches in diameter,
so they should be able to do it.
