    I found this for said in a ad for a used restaurant equipment supply house that I deal with...[​IMG]with the ad stating

    This is a 12 inch meat/cheese slicer. This is a nice unit and operates off 120 volts. I do not have a sharpener for the blade but sharpened it with a hand held stone so it can be sharpened. The slicer operates smooth and has no problems. - $250.00. What's your thoughts ????  I have, if I remember correctly a Open Country 7" or 71/4" , that I have been using for about 2 years, but it seems to get hot after a few minutes of using it, which makes me concerned on just how long it will last me. I was thinking about going to look at it, but you know what that usually means with me at least.... it's in the bag, if I leave the house for it......He is pretty frim on the price, so price may not be a negating option....
  2. don't know the brand but it looks worth the money
  3. 250 sounds like a good deal for a 12".

    Yea, try to get a model number and brand then do a search.  Only way to tell.  All I see is metal and that may be more valuable them plastic but who knows?
  5. It's got that big blade that only spins on the outside.

    Is it suppose to have a blade sharpener? If so you might be able to get one thru them or the manufacturer. Looks like a nice one though.
  7. I agree with smokeamotive.  You will want to get the sharpener.  It's really dangerous to sharpen any other way... cue my friend who sliced part of his thumb off WITH a protective glove.

    I bought an off brand slicer last year. Mine was getting hot too. Check underneath the slicer for a plastic cover plate. If it is there it will cover the whole bottom not just the gears. I removed mine and it took care of the getting hot problem.
