What to do with a very old J. bobst et fils SA paper cutting machine

Hello, I have found an old paper cutting machine in my grandfather's cellar. His own grandfather was a bookbinder in the old day. The brand is J. Bobst et fils SA. I guess it dates back to around 1920 but I couldn't find anything about that model online. Most Bobst machines are big and automated but not this one.
I have a quick picture I took of it, but I can get better ones if you want.

I am not sure what I should do with it. Do you have any informations about it?

Thank you in advance!

Good grief, how did you mange to post such big photos - the limit is 800x600 I thought. Might help if you made them smaller.

Why not contact Bobst and see if they'd be interested in it? Might have museum they'd like it for.

Where I live, one would put it in the "Altmetall" bin at the recycling center. Not sure what it is called in Vaud.

Or you could put it on Ricardo with a starting bid of 1 CHF. Someone might want it.

Donate to some hipster print shop?

Since you speak French, it would probably be called "un massicot". You could contact them at their HQ in Mex VD which is close to Lausanne (En Faraz, 1031 Mex / 021 621 21 11) and see if they might be interested for their museum if they have one.

Some history:

1890 Joseph Bobst ouvre un commerce de fournitures pour l’imprimerie à Lausanne (Suisse).

1908 Ouverture d’un atelier pour le service à la clientèle.

1915 Première production d’équipements.

1917 Dépôt de la marque Bobst.

1918 Constitution en société anonyme, sous la raison sociale J. Bobst & Fils SA.


Let us know what happens.
