My uncle operated a small printing business out of my grandparents'' basement as a kid. I now have the paper cutter that he used because I couldn''t see scrapping a functional antique. It weighs about 500 pounds, has a two foot (?) wide bed, I''m told

is capable of cutting a ream at a time and is human powered by way of a five foot lever. It is disassembled, the blade is a bit dinged up by transport (though still dangerously sharp) and it has developed a bit of surface rust, though nothing a bit of steel wool wouldn''t take care of.My question is if this piece is of any value to anyone. My wife has nixed the furniture idea. Please respond or forward to any party you feel might have an interest. I need my basement corner again.Thanks.

Hi
Just wondering if you've gotten any replies to your posting. I have almost the exact same type of paper cutter in my garage. It came with the house when we bought it at auction. The elderly man who lived in it operated a printing business.

Thanks

I am in the printing business and I have a full size, Milton Bradley, paper cutter. It is quite a nice piece of equipment. It works as well as it did 100 years ago.
Do you know how many were made?

I also have an antique paper cutter, at least 150 years old, dated in gold. It will cut a ream of paper, has an extra blade, and is functional, and looks great, -- clean, shiny and black-- museum quality. I use it all the time. But it is large and I need the space again. If you know of anyone who still wants one I want to sell it at this point. I also have for sale an antique perforator that is also very functional.

I am looking to pick up an old paper cutter that is at approx. 18 inches wide. If anyone has one available at this point I would like to hear from them.

In recent years, with the advent of computer graphics, different software programs, scanners and printers, the notion of printmaking has changed dramatically. The classic hands-on approaches have now been replaced by entirely automated ones. Prints of images created or manipulated on a computer can now be created at the push of a button. This technology has led to some interesting variations on traditional prints.
