Re: guillotine info wanted


I can't say anything about the Jacques cuter; however, I recently purchased
a Chandler and Price Guillotine 19" in good condition.  ( I wouldn't say
mint by a long shot... But it cuts cleanly and after doing a bit of clean up
and what not I am happy.  The only thing I didn't like was getting it up the
steps into my studio!!  I paid $250(US) for it.

BTW, I was cautioned by an instructor NOT to cut board with a Guillotine:
they should be used for paper only.  Board has too many lumps and bumpy
things that might nick the blade.  Could this fall under the heading of
"urban legend"?  I don't know but for now I'll play it safe.

Can anyone out there give me a ballpark figure on the worth of a Jacques
guilllotine board cutter, throat measures 14 1/2 and length is 23. It's in
mint condition, has safety catch on arm, newly sharpened blade,small brass
plate on front says John Jacques and Son, Worcester, Mass. Thanks for any
