Guillotine paper cutter

I have a Jaques guillotine paper cutter and am working up my courage to begin using it. I couldn’t find a video I remember seeing once that covered safety issues so I hope someone out there can point me to instructions and safety tips. My guillotine is made by Jacques and is a tabletop model.

Well, I did some cutting today after examining the machine to figure out all the parts. I don’t know what I was afraid of—it cut like a dream! I oiled wherever there was an oil hole. There is a sort of reluctance at the beginning on the return trip of the arm. I’m wondering if there was a spot I didn’t oil or if that is normal behavior?
