An Easy Guillotine Tool

Guillotine tools are very useful helpers for the smith who works alone. A good one will cut your time in shaping and cut-off operations depending on your selection of dies. Dies are easy to make, so it's a simple matter to have a good selection on hand to suit the type of work you are doing.

I have seen many ideas for making guillotines around the web over the years, some are more complicated to make than others. Many have probably seen the one I am posting today before, it has made it's rounds on the web. It is one of the easiest I have seen to build, a few workshop scraps and some welding is all you need. A small price for the huge help this tool can be.

The plan was originally published in ABANA's "Hammer's Blow" newsletter. I got this copy from the "Saltfork Craftsman" newsletter of August 2005.
