Chopped! Guillotine Cigar Cutter, c. 1890... and a virtual museum

Made around 1890 in Italy this on an auction site for $3,900.

 I've got some kind of morbid fascination with these devices because I found myself wanting to build a model and in the course of my research I came across someone who makes fantastic museum quality replicas:  Guillotine.  He has a virtual museum and includes tips for construction.....just in case you want to take a chop at building one.
