The K16

The K-16 is a machine made especially for the trade organization, The Picture Frame Equipment Company - Jackson, MS. It appears that a new set of serial numbers were started for this model. It returned to the red case color of the K-10.

Bob Pollard of Madison, MS sent us the following enhanced history of this variant Cutawl model: "I am the father of the K16 Cutawl.  Back in 1986 I was president of Picture Framing Equipment Company and we saw a potential for using this machine to cut picture framing mats.  I went up to Bethel and met with the Olsons.  They agreed to paint the standard K11 red for us and print our logo on the reverse side of the nameplate.  (If you turn the nameplate around, it will be the standard K11 emblem and serial number.)  There is absolutely no difference in the K11 and the K16. Picture Framing Equipment was closed in 1989 and the rest is history."

(This machine is in the Museum as a result of the KIND donation of  Donald Fridrich.)
