The Boston 2612 paper cutter that Barbra uses is not safe to operate, there is no tension spring!!!

The paper cutter that Barbra uses every week is not safe and she said it has always been like that. It needs to be fixed or replaced as soon as possible.  

Thanks

Tension Spring
All guillotine type units should be equipped with tension springs. The tension spring is attached to the back of the blade and is engineered to prevent the blade from rushing down when the handle is released. Guillotine cutters without this spring live up to their name, guillotine, and are very, very dangerous. You should never operate a paper cutter that has no tension spring. It is literally an accident waiting to happen. No paper cutting task is worth losing a digit over. If your cutter has no tension spring, put it in a safe and secure location until the tension spring can be replaced.

The biggest single factor in guillotine paper cutter safety is the user. There is simply no substitute for good common sense. Do not use one when you are distracted or when you cannot give your full attention to the task at hand. Even units with safety features can still cause accidents. These types of machines are wonderful tools because of their powerful blades and ability to easily cut through piles of paper. However, for the very same reasons it is a good tool, it is a dangerous one. Always exercise caution when using one of these machines and do not use one that isn’t equipped with safety features.
