I'm co-writing a short musical for Halloween this year, centered around an old-timey circus, and a magician central character.
At the moment, we have a guillotine as the big finale to the character's act, and we're exploring our options.
My cohorts done a bit of shopping around, and have been unsuccessful thus far. I'm checking out Magicauction.com; but I think our ideal would be finding guillotine plans; we have the means to construct one if need be.
Any help anyone can offer in tracking down a guillotine, or plans would be greatly appreciated.
