So, this slicer has been in storage for many years. I don't remember where it came from but it appears that it was manufactured in the 1930's. It is in good working condition. The blade is sharp and all of the parts that are supposed to move, do so freely. The problem is that there is a piece missing (the part that holds the meat against the blade). I have performed a search of the Internet and cant come up with much. There is no model number kn the unit. I could at least find a picture of the part, we might be able to fabricate something that will work.
