Orteguil bench top guillotine knives

Post by Louiss » Fri 21 Jan, 2022 1:53 pm

Hi all,

I am trying to set up a little hobby style workshop in my garage. I've got no power so I can't run my pneumatic morso (this was originally a manual machine so maybe one day I'll convert it back). I have a Nobex but was also considering getting a mitre trimmer to compliment it, but I was also thinking about getting an old Orteguil benchtop guillotine. Can you actually cut a moulding on one of these machines, or would you use it more like a trimmer? Also, does anyone know where one would buy replacement knives? Are they still available anywhere?

Thanks in advance!

Louis
