This is quite simply an incredibly constructed prop. There are safety features involved that are remarkable. They are not there and as soon as you lock the spectator in the literally emerge. The working is smooth and even up close undetectable. It is in perfect working condition. Much more going on mechanically than it appears. Without a doubt the nicest guillotine ever made. In perfect working condition and good used condition overall. It looks the part. This prop currently sales for $6,000. We are selling it at a price you should feel guilty about if you buy it! With instructions.
