The K3


(The Museum does not currently own one of these machines - we would GLADLY accept a donation of one!)

This is an interesting vintage cutting machine tool, dated 1924. This machine's photos were supplied us by Ray Jones. It is a completely functional model of the oldest known model of the Cutawl machine (WHAT ever happened to K 1 - K2????) This amazing counter-levered design was a precursor to the uni-body design that has been well documented. This machine seems to be missing one of the extension arms that is found on the K5. Was this machine different in that regard?

The label says "INTERNATIONAL CUTAWL, pat. May 6, 1924, Type K3, Serial Number 304. Made by International Register Co., Chicago, Ill.

K3 - Table Model

(The Museum does not currently own one of these machines - we would GLADLY accept a donation of one!)

This is an interesting vintage K3 Cutawl. It seems to be a variation of the boom mounted version pictured above. It is intended to be used on the surface of the table like many of the future designs.
