Hughes & Kimber Board Shear for sale, circa 1880, originally from London, England. A beautiful, fully functional machine, capable of cutting a full size book board sheet, yet reasonably sized for a studio. We’ve owned it for nearly 9 years. Cutter has no back gauge. We fashioned a steel side guide, and use a 90 degree steel angle backed by magnetic strip to cut paper stock to size. Original hand-hammered foot treadle (which operates the paper clamp). Approximately 800 lbs. Asking $2000.

Purchase both machines together for a package price of $3000.
