Started with this. I needed to know how to remove the hardbound spine from a book.

Guess which population of savvy users had done this and had multiple discussion threads on the best way to go about it?

Yup. Metafilter here and again.

I sent an email to the local Kinko’s ( sorry FedEx, it’s Kinko’s to me ) and we’ll see if they have the spine guillotine.
