Paper Cutter Job For Student

I have a bit of a strange job request but one I think should be pretty straight forward for a student. 

I'm looking to modify a paper cutter (click link below to see model) so that I can adjust the amount being trimmed off down to exactly 1/64", perfectly square. Essentially I want the student to create a sliding back stop, with a measurement gauge, that tells me exactly how much paper is being trimmed off down to 1/64". I do some very detailed restoration work so need this to be completely precise.
Happy to elaborate more on this to you or anyone interested. I'm not sure what year or experience level I should be targeting so I'll look to you for some guidance on that.
Please contact me at briandeer415@Gmail.Com or 858-354-6568.
Thanks, Brian
