20 Mar 2015 United States Rieger Gouger

This is an older Rieger gouger, same functionality of the new ones just a slightly different design. The gouger has a 116mm bed, which is the reason I'm selling. Other than the fact that 116mm is too short for my reeds, the gouger works perfectly. It has a few cosmetic blemishes (shown in the pictures) but they do not affect functionality. Buyer pays shipping, and I will provide the guillotine that came with it. Email for additional info/pictures.
