This machine seems to be some sort of paper cutter or guillotine. The position of the front “comb” can be adjusted by means of the long screw under the bed of the table. The rear “comb” presses down on the paper – note that its profile is to be flat against the table top. (The front “comb” has a vertical face on the side facing the rear “comb). The pressure on the rear comb ensures that the paper is held securely the pressure being controlled by the horizontal wheel on the top of the machine.

Movement of the lever, on the left, towards the machine will cause the horizontal bar, linked to the frame by the two pivots, to slice downwards. Below this bar is a light grey bar which is almost certainly the actual cutting blade. The bar and cutting blade appear to be located in vertical slots in the frame.

The lever pivots on a spindle built into the machine at about knee height. The elbow shaped linkage is attached to the frame on the right and to the lever on the left using the same pin to also link it to the horizontal bar.

The top pivot, which appears to attach the bar to the handle is in fact not attached to it but serves to keep the bar horizontal in conjunction with the pivot at the other end of that bar.

When i saw this i remembered the printing equipment of my friend. While still teaching i wrote a text/workbook in basic accounting and had it printed in their shop. I was asking about this machine and that's what they told me, it was a pressing machine for a cutter. Their equipment were all antiquated and they closed shop after sometime.

jacki2

i don't think so, orange yellow. but i kind of like you idea, especially for animal abusers and polluters.

jacki2

that's twice in one night, and it made me giggle again. are you getting enough sleep :o)

jacki2

sorry djp. but thanks for the visit and the comment.

jacki2

oh, look at your new avatar, nev. i asked dave about stumpy's comment and it made sense to him, too.

jacki2

hi kate. can i assume you are sick of doing laundry :O)

jacki2

thanks jill. looks like we have an answer though.

jacki2

thank you stumpy. this machine sits in the window of the local, weekly paper. your identification makes sense if they used it to cut paper the right size for a weekly. but it does seem like a lot of machine just to cut paper.

jacki2

i think you and fatcat are close, lunie. that's what i thought it was but see stumpy johnson's comment.

jacki2

that's what i thought too, fatcatlady (that seems very disrespectful. is there another name you go by?)

jacki2

maybe something like that, sis.

What/ You can't make wine with it!

My first impression was The Rack, where they stretched people in the Middle Ages by turning a wheel. But I like the explanation of stumpyjohnson - that sounds far more practical. ♥♥♥

KateKMK

That's fun! Is it something to rip your dirty cloths up..............................

TheLittleBlueHat

Very interesting! Thanks, Jacki :)

FatCatLady

Yeah, stumyjohnson, now that I look closer, it's lacking quite a few parts ot be a printing press.

stumpyjohnson

That is a lever action cutting press. It is designed to hold 18 individual pieces (of what I don't know) and cut them into identical lengths. The top wheel adjusts and hold top pressure on the material to be cut. The lever on the left lowers the blade using the fulcrum bars on the left to increase any muscle pressure applied and the screw on the bottom adjust the guide bar for length.

Dilubreuer

I agree with. You FatCat, that's what i was thinking.

FatCatLady

Printing press of Ben Franklin's time.

Dilubreuer

No idea really, but am guessing it to be an old Pressing machine?
