This nice, clean 20" Ideal Cutter
is in search of a new home. The owner of Hilltop Print Shop has recently retired and no longer has need of this nice little cutter. It is available for pick up in Kalamazoo and is an ideal size for a small job or hobby shop. It will need some tlc, but no major repairs. We don't know the condition of the blade - or if there is a spare blade with it, but the blade can be sharpened and a new blade can be acquired through aftermarket sources (Bindery Tools)

The large diameter clamp wheel and the long lever and counter weights makes it easy to clamp down on a lift and cut through half a ream of 8 1/2 x 11" 20# bond in one cut. Wider sheets may cut better in smaller lifts.

Here's the text of the contact form submission I received.

I have an Ideal paper cutter, age unknown but old. 20" wide table.  Still works, but needs to be refurbished. I need to get rid of it and will probably have to junk it but that's last resort. I have pictures. If you are willing to pay to move it, you can have it.
This is the last item of my hobby press, Hilltop Printshop. All else went to good homes.

The grounds supervisor here at our retirement village says he will put it on a skid, fasten it down and lift it onto the bed of a pickup truck or whatever you might drive.
23" Ideal Paper Cutter

Note: This cutter is the ideal size for a small shop. It will cut a sheet up to 20" wide and the long lever makes cutting even a tall stack pretty easy.
