Wallpaper Trimmer assembled

Found this lovely device on the Vagrants Boot sale near Nantwich for £2.
Made by Morgan-Lee from Birmingham. Well engineered and it seems to work..although I havn't tried it on a long piece of wallpaper as yet. Fully adjustable.
This cost 15 shillings...sounds an expensive piece of kit...

Wallpaper Trimmer in box

The Morgan-Lee Wallpaper Trimmer Instruction leaflet

A little ripped and battered but still readable.
I like Number 3..."The spring Head Roller is fitted on an eccentric pin to enable the user to adjust the gap between the Rollers.."
