NYC: John Jacques Cast Iron Board Shear

Center for Book Arts is selling a cast Iron John Jacques Board Shear, bed size is 26 x 43. This would fit comfortably into a 3 x 4 foot area. I seem to be unable to upload photos here, but would be happy to send you photos if you get in touch.

It has been in use in our studio and is in great working order. The sliding back gauge is missing but easily replaced with a triangle or a replacement part.

We are trying to move this out as soon as possible.

Please make us an offer!

We would also consider donating the board shear to a new bindery in need or a school.

All offers will be considered. If you are able to make a monetary offer, the proceeds from the sale will help us build out a risograph area in our printshop.

Available for pick up. We can help with disassembly and moving into your truck or moving van.
Located in New York City in a building with a freight elevator.

Please contact me at [email protected] if you’re interested or want to check it out in person.
