Paper Cutter

by @ 9:42 am. Filed under Registry Ops

Thanks once again to the Worcester Registry of Deeds. A couple of weeks ago we borrowed a large paper cutter from them. This morning Joe Simone from Worcester graciously came to Lowell and gave us a “how to” lesson on the cutter. Since we are going to remove all record books as soon as possible we plan on re-scanning the bad images in our database. Experience has taught us the easiest way to do this is by disassembling the book and using the auto-feed feature on the scanner. In order to disassemble the old large record books we need to remove the cover, then cut the thread and glue from the book’s spine. This is where Worcester’s book cutter comes into play. This cutter is amazing. It cuts through 100 pages with ease. Even at one hundred pages a “chop” it will still take some time to prepare all the books for scanning. Once the book is “dissembled and scanned it will be placed in storage.
