if you still wear ties, it's pretty good at making them shorter very quickly.....

 

now and then i have to make on the TS some card stock for my wife to use for recipe cards.  i get 3 cards per sheet.  do about 30 sheets at a time, have some scrap pieces of plywood to hold the paper down as it goes thru the blade.

 

using that might get cleaner cuts, but you could not do 30 at a time, the paper would move and you would not get pieces all the same size and shape.

 

start wearing ties and let us know how it works out.

Wife had one of those paper cutters. Found it at a garage sale. When it got too dull to cut the paper she used, she gave it to me. It cut paper backed sandpaper ok but the thing just took up too much space for the few times I used it. I junked it. It's simpler to use the old hacksaw blade screwed to piece of ply.

@John Morris

By John Morris, 3 hours ago in General Woodworking...Do I Need This? If you don't already have one, then yes especially if it's free. One of these days you're gonna' say, "sure wish I had one of those old fashioned paper cutters."

Hoard 'er take it...you'll find a use for it; if not let the kids deal with it in 35-40 years at the Estate Sale:D

I like to use spray glue to adhere felt to pasteboard ( recycled cereal boxes) one of those with a sharp blade would be the shiz for cutting that stuff to size!

John if you lived next door yes I would walk over and get it. I would not require you to bring it over here...Nice of me huh?? But no, for it takes up too much room. I use to have a good use for one but I think age is setting in more than I want to admit....The way I print out the patterns I glue on to the wood for the scroll saw cutting sometimes I have 6 or 8 pages to glue together to make one pattern and it is a chore to get all that straight... Right now I have many patterns already put together from long ago still sitting there calling to grab me and get the glue ready...Thanks anyway.

Have one in my den under the secretary desk. Used to get a lot of use, but not much lately. I'm sure that if I let it go, I'll need it.

All kidding aside,  a friend once asked if I'd do a favor for him and wanted me to help him move some things for the school. Sure. We went to a small storage building away from the school and inside we saw afew of those paper cutters, a mimeograph machine and some other things I had not seen since I was a kid. We moved them to the trash, so they could use the building for other things. All the time I was helping, I kept thinking, "How can I use this stuff?" At that time I wasn't woodworker, I was a control tech of mechanical things and nothing fit.

You always have to ask yourself the question in a slightly different way:

 

Do i need this now and what would i use it for and will i regret getting rid of it right after that.

Then ask your wife what she wants to use it for and you better still have it.  :lol:

Guys, thanks all, so I get what your all saying, take it! So I will!

Tried to pawn it off on Jess, but no luck.

 

It is flat so I can stow it somewhere I guess, it's old, gotta be from the 50's at least. We have a Quonset Hut out back of our yard at my day job, and it's full of old surplus this and that. I also found some really old government plats and maps, they are going in the trash unless someone picks em up, I may have to intercept a few of those.

Thanks again guys!

That looks like one of the old style ones at that.  Thats when they made them to last. and work.   Unlike the plasticrap that is sold these days.  Just because something can be made of plastic doesnt  mean its a good idea to do so, or if the result is as useful as the original.

Wonder if it could be rigged as a miter trimmer?

Might work on veneer,but moldings not so good, the shear angle is too flat,VOE.

it does if you have a super sharp blade and a hold down so the veneer doesn't shift or roll when you shear it...

and you have zero slop between the blade and anvil...

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
