This Industrial Paper-Cutter Sounds Like a Star Wars Blaster

Just listen to this thing. YouTuber Michael Asher's dad has a print shop, equipped with this very scary but totally mesmerizing paper cutter. It zips through a ream of paper like a hot Storm Trooper Blaster through the air around Han Solo.

It's called a guillotine (yes, that kind), and even though I have two of them in my shop, I've never noticed the sound being so close to a blaster. I think the mic on whatever he filmed it with makes it sound a little more "electronic" than it does in person.

Still cool though...
