HFS Hevy Duty Guillotine Paper Cutter

Has anyone ever used an HFS Heavy Duty Guillotine? It is fairly inexpensive—$150.00. Wanted for book arts to cut stiff leaf book structures. Here is the link:

Thanks for the input. Any suggestions for a small scale guillotine other than this one?

For serious printers and book arts people, I wouldn’t trust any of those newer lightweight cutters. Either the clamp isn’t strong enough to keep the stack from sliding during the cut, or the back gauge isn’t square, or both. I think you would be much better off with a cast iron Challenge tabletop cutter like the one in your previous post. It looks like that one was a 23” but I think they also made a 19” model, if you wanted a smaller one.
