Anybody got an old paper tape end-cutter they'd sell? Mine just broke and it SUCKS feeding ragged tape into my HP2100A...

Yeah, why not scissors? When you tear tape off of a Teletype punch, it tears to a point, but there isn't anything critical about the angles. What kind of point-cutter do you have, anyway? I've never seen such an 'official' tool.
