Re: guillotine info wanted

It's not an urban legend.   I once took some board to my (formerly) friendly
print shop to get it cut on their guillotine with  a newly sharpened blade.
They had to send the blade back immediately for resharpening.  I volunteered
to pay for resharpening, but they declined.
