Matt,

How's this?

You could just replace the blade with a good diode laser if you need one, or it may be enough. 
There are different sizes and cheaper options.

Im trying to cut paper and Im just not getting the resolution or accuracy I need with scissors (possibly due to an overwhelming lack of coordination & dexterity).  Plus I can more accurately and more efficiently program Python to generate GCODE to run a cutter.
