A little outside of New York city, in Elizabeth, NJ, is American
Graphic Arts, which sells used and refurbished board shears, job
backers, guillotines, nipping presses, etc. I have never been
there, but I have talked to them on the phone and they are very
helpful people. The shop must be a wonderful place filled with
old binding and printing equipment in various stages of repair.
Their number is (908) 351-6906 and address is:
Elizabeth, New Jersey
Enjoy your trip!

By all means leave the road when you wish. That is precisely the use
of a road: to reach individually chosen points of departure. By all
means break the rules, and break them beautifully, deliberately and
well. That is one of the ends for which they exist.
