registered cutting machine

A type of cutting machine which operates on the same principle as that of the lying press and plow, except that it has a table on which the work is placed and a gauge at the back for the accurate positioning of the pile to be cut. When in the correct position, the top beam is screwed down and the paper is plowed. The registered cutting machine is seldom if ever used today.
