Board Shears

The heavy-duty, wood-surfaced Jacques board shears are fitted with a 42 inch blade designed to slice through heavy-weight board and batches of paper up to ¼ inch thick. The shears come equipped with a sliding table gauge, a foot clamp, a back gauge and a spring gauge.

Bookkeeper's™ Deacidification Spray System

The spray system is a pressurized spray unit designed to apply Bookkeeper's ™ Deacification spray liquid on acidic (but not brittle) paper collections. This is similar to the mass deacidification service currently being offered through Collections Care, but the spray system allows us to deacidify single items or small-volume collections in-house.
