After a year of development we have produced an affordable bookbinding plough.
The design uses the latest linear bearing to guide the specially developed high speed steel blade. The simplest way to cut through a thick book or text block (7cm in fact).
By lowering the blade a little on each stroke just a few pages are cut so reducing the effort required. A professional industrial guillotine to cut through a text block this thick would cost many thousands. This is the affordable alternative for the hobby and small professional bookbinder.
Using this plough your book will have accurately cut square edges to the pages in essence the most professional finish possible.
It can cut any paper/ card up to a full A3 size and 7cm thick.
