    You have me humbled! Years ago (and I mean decades) I worked for a company doing various production operations. We had constructed a machine to do the same operation shown here, only it was from 6 inches to maybe 2 feet. I have since moved out to southern California and am now working for a non-profit and we do production as well. The company I worked for, is long gone, and I sure wish I had the cutter and here I see a much more modern operation. I’d like to ask if you could help, and either make one for us, or answer one question for me, can we set it for inches instead of feet? Would love to talk details! We are Help Heal Veterans and manufacture and provide craft kits to veterans free of charge for therapy needs. We are located outside of Temecula, CA. 951-926-4500 if you could talk (or visit, you’d be welcome). Thank you Chip
