interlocking clamp and back gauge

Recesses in the clamp and back gauge of a GUILLOTINE cutter which permit the back gauge to push the pile to be cut further forward than would be possible if both clamp and back gauge were solid. Its purpose is to allow for cutting narrow strips. In normal cutting, a flat solid plate fits over the clamp to prevent it from indenting the stock. (145 )
