Here is a step by step video slide show of the full-size Guillotine I've been working on for a couple of months now. It is not complete yet, I just got done with sanding and staining it and still need to set up the blade release line and the one to pull the blade back up with. It is about 13' tall and will have a working blade, made out of 16awg steel for demonstrations and while not in use, it'll have a Styrofoam blade on it so as to keep it from accidentally hurting anyone. The scanned pages close to the end are more or less the designs I went with after a few minor changes (including correcting my math on the last page since I used tan() instead of tan^-1() after having a brain fart!) I will update this entry if I'm allowed to later on once it is completed.
We have a be nice policy.
