rotary board cutter

A machine used extensively in library binderies, and to some extent in edition binderies, for cutting boards to trimmed size. The circular blades of the cutter are fixed on an axle, and the board passes beneath them on a flat bed. One pass cuts the boards to the set length, and, after adjustment of the setting, a second pass cuts them to the required width. (81 , 203 )
