The Martin Display Cutter

The Martin Display Cutter is a claimant for the ONLY machine invented to be a direct competeior to the Cutawl machine. It was patented in June of 1937 by Benton N. Ewing of Fayetteville, NC on behalf of Martin Brothers Electric Company of Cleveland, OH. It has a reciprocating blade that swivels the same way a Cutawl blade swivels. It does have one feature that the Cutawl machine never emulated - it tilts to an angle allowing for a bevel cut.

The machine and it's patent is the only known model of this Martin Display Cutter.
