    This drawing/sketch shows how I cic mine. to help with my written explanation.
    Pics of the board didnt show it well enough.
    Here is the parts list
    1- spacers to hold angle in level alignment
    2- hex nuts 1/4 20
    3- aluminum angle
    4- threaded rod 1/4 20
    5-thumb nuts 1/4 20
    6- aluminum angl
    7-aluminum flat stock

    I only showed the side view of the parts that had alignment needs.

    With the increased popularity of lasers, I wonder if people will start using them for cutting paper patches. Seems like it would be a conflict of technologies.

    I suspect that a laser cutter would start the paper on fire but I’m not sure on that.

    I used a paper cutter along with jigs for cutting alignments, then went back to making my own brass cutting templates - ah, mo' bettah.
    The .45-70 is the only government I trust.

    I found an old school paper cutter like the OP showed... hoping to give it a try shortly. Got some .40 cal HB PP bullets cast up for a Krieger Metford rifled bbl.

    I use an Ingento paper cutter for both the strips and the angle cuts. Click image for larger version.

    Has anyone ever used one of these to cut paper patches? Any reason that it wouldn't work?
    That style of paper cutter is what Iíve used for the last 24 years. Iím happy with sub MOA groups and dead critters.

    Now that I'm semi-retired, it's time to give paper-patching a try!

    Pretty sure that the same Italian made paper cutter that I have too! It followed me home from the pawn store one day... the power of bundling! Got it for cheap... and it's like new.
    Was out casting again today... the pile of RCBS 40 cal 400 HB PP slicks is growing )

    I just started to cut patches for my Pedersoli Sharps rifle .446 dia money boolet. My question is this once the patch is wrapped and dried on the boolet, can you (or should you) grease the paper prior to seating the boolet into the 4570 case? Is it necessary?

    You can wipe them lightly with JO Joba oil or I put my cut patches in a ziplock bag with a few drops of Jo Joba oil and let them set for a few days. Yes if your going to lube do it before seating. I find the lightly dampened patches wrap a little smoother and the fold under is tighter. On my patches you just see a sheen not wet looking or translucent. A drop of oil on finger tip will do 4-5 bullets I wipe them then re wipe them a second time with out adding more oil just spread any excess on down the line.

    Also treating the patches in the bag isnt as messy as wiping them down.
