What is a Manual Treadle Guillotine?

A manual treadle guillotine is operated by hand and foot and is used for shearing mild steel, copper, aluminium, brass and zinc. They are fitted with a back stop and rear guard for safety. The large size of the machine allows for precision when completing large-scale projects, allowing you to work with heavy duty materials.

Benefits of a Manual Treadle Guillotine

  • Strong shearing capabilities across a range of materials.
  • Smooth cuts and precise results with little distortion.
  • Suitable for large and thick pieces of material.
  • Adjustable gibs, allowing you to reset and align the machine throughout its lifetime.

Things to Consider When Buying a Manual Treadle Guillotine

  • What type of material will you be cutting? Manual treadle guillotines are ideal for cutting steel, copper, aluminium, bronze and zinc.
  • What is your budget? Compared to some other guillotine machines, manual treadles may be considered on the more affordable end of the scale. Depending on your needs, Hand Shears may be a suitable alternative for your project.
  • How often will you be using your machine? It’s important to consider the ongoing maintenance of your machine. If you will be using it for commercial quantities, your manual treadle guillotine, like all machinery, can wear out faster.
