1. A trimmer for trimming an edge portion of a bound material, comprising:
a table for supporting the bound material;
a trim cutter for cutting the edge portion of the bound material;
a frame for supporting the trim cutter;
a first drive mechanism for reciprocating the trim cutter in a vertical direction between a cutting position and a non-cutting position;
a second drive mechanism for moving the trim cutter or the table in a moving direction perpendicular to a length direction of the trim cutter; and
a control unit for controlling operations of the first and second drive mechanisms;
wherein the edge portion of the bound material to be cut is long in such a manner that the edge portion is bent when the edge portion is cut by the trim cutter only once;
wherein the edge portion of the bound material is provided with first and second lines to be cut, the first and second lines are spaced at a small interval and arranged in parallel to each other;
wherein the small interval is 1 to 5 mm;
wherein the first line is arranged outside of the second line of the bound material;
wherein the control unit is configured to receive an input as to whether the bound material is to be cut once or cut twice; and
wherein the control unit is configured such that when the control unit receives the input that the bound material is to be cut twice, the control unit controls the first and second drive mechanisms in such a manner that the edge portion of the bound material is cut at the first line by the trim cutter, then the trim cutter or the table is moved at the small interval in the moving direction toward the second line, and then the edge portion of the bound material is automatically cut at the second line by the trim cutter.
