I built one of these years ago, but it was oak and not that great. I really took my time on this one and think it came out nice. The blade drops with AUTHORITY, but just does not quite cut the end off of a cigar…....Dang.

-- Im so impressed with what people can do, and I wonder how they do it. Thats what keeps me doing it.

That’s hilarious. Nice job. Are you going to add more weight to the blade assembly?

I am thinking about moving down to a 48 ring size instead of 52 on my Churchill’s. Heck of a lot easier than cracking back into that steel blade assembly.

Three guys are on the platform and…
The first one goes to the guillotine, the blade drops but sticks just above his neck.
Executioner says “you’ve had enough of a scare… you may go free”.
Next guy stick is head through the hole and down comes the blade and… stops just above his neck.
Executioner says “you’ve had enough of a scare… you may go free”.
Third guy says “wait wait wait!, this is terrifying! I can’t stand it!... just rub a little butter on the blade… it’ll slide down just fine”.

Problem solved :)

Cool project!

Nice work, I’ve always wanted one of these for making coleslaw (I don’t smoke).

Neat little project. If you want it to cut a cigar, add more brass to the top and it will look like it is planned that way….............Jim

That is really cool. If you build a life size one, I would like to volunteer my neighbor to be the first to try it out on. LOL
