The purpose of a guillotine tool is to hold an upper and lower die at the same time. The force is supplied by a blow of your hammer. The Whitlox Guillotine Tool stands apart from other blacksmith helper style tools in three ways:
1. The jaws open by hip activated lever, preventing awkward juggling of hammer, tongs and die.
2. It is custom made to fit the hardy hole in your anvil, no matter its dimension.
3. We offer a variety of 4140 hardened dies for cutting and forming.
