A great deal on a slicer

Recommended Posts

I have been looking into a slicer for the last few months and just couldn't justify the cost for the amount of time that I will use it. 


I was looking on our local claddified site here it's here in Canada called Kijiji and stumbled upon an Omcan 12" 300e Italian built meat slicer.  They retail for 1899.00 CAD and I was shocked to find one on for 360.00.  It is an older model so it needed some tlc but for the most part it looks and runs great.  


I offered red the seller 200.00 after looking st it and he agreed. SCORE!!!!!!


Anyways, I took it home and ripped it apart and cleaned every book and cranny and even used steel wool to polish up the metal.  


I ran the sharpener and got the sharp polished edge back on the wheel and tightened the band.  Looks like we are back in business after I lubricated the two gliding rods.  


Cany wait to try this out on my pork belly next week.

Well like they say .... if it sounds too good to be true


I cleaned it all up and had it looking great and the wheel stuck.  I couldn't figure out what happened.  


I could get it to go by manually spinning the the wheel and then it would go but I didn't like that.  I called buddy who seemed not to happy but gave me the impression that he "may have forgotten" to tell me something.  


After his initial reluctance he agreed to give me my money back.  


Im back on the hunt for a good slicer

To rebuild the motor would be about $100, and even at $300 that would have been a darn good deal.   My cousin was present at a closing of a restaurant that he worked at and latched onto a high end slicer.   I talked him out of it (he would never have used it) and discovered the motor bearings were shot.   Slicing ham for years took it's toll.  So for $100 I got a very decent slicer out of the deal.  This is a picture of it being cleaned with bleach and rinse. And I didn't even get a sharpenerMeat slicer.JPG.
