Guillotine modelling (scale and full size):


click on "workshop", "construction", and "gallery"

If you're squeamish, you'll want to be careful about fully exploring the site.

Don't think anyone would ever bother Me in the shop if one of them were in there.

How long before some d--head builds one and decides to test it by putting his finger in the neck hole and pulling the lever?

Set up a full sized unit ready to chop in the well of the US House of Representatives. Maybe a few need inspiration.

Good Morning Forrest,
I see you are awake early today also, ;-)

Not too different from my 100 ton coining press. I spattered a die all over the yard next to the shop once. A piece of it went right through a car fender like a bullet. Glad I was standing on the column side at the time. Gravity can be very powerful. :)

I wonder if you have to have a background check to buy a full sized one? After hearing about people/children tortured and held prisoner by whackos ,I am a tad squeamish about this. Sorry

Wonder if the sound scales out properly. Is it "rumble rumble rumble kerchompf" or "zip snip"?

I think you have to add the sound of a coconut landing in the catch basket, after all have to at least be civilized and not desecrate a corpse.

I don't think you have to worry about someone's finger, after all they have several "spares". Now the other item of similiar size, I hope most people know that "you can get circumsized only once". Then again it is a machine used for removing heads.
