    Way to go Brian! It don't matter how old it is - it's already better than a lot of the more modern slicers because it was built to last. Can't wait to see the next round of pics

    No, it is better because it is a Hobart, the epitome of quality slicers.

    Brian, I am just pissed because I wanted to find it and you did instead.

    Sorry for the display of jealousy......well at least I'm honest.

    Wanna double your money?

    No chance, my friend...
    I have all the parts loaded up and plan on replacing all the "White" with a gloss black powdercoat about 2-3 mils thick. The silver parts will get a couple mils of silver sparkle powder.
    Stay Tuned for the pics.
    Thanks for all the comments.

    I'm still jealous, so I won't look at them.

    Well, after many setbacks, I've got most of the restoration done.
    I still have some polishing to do, but it's useable.
    When I bought this slicer, it was extremely rough and there was a lot of pitting on the aluminum. I had all the pieces chemically stripped and powder-coated everything that is black.
    The shiny aluminum parts were supposed to be powdered as well, but the powder ruptured and I ended up burning them off and polishing them up.
    This is a close-up of the sharpening mechanism.

    If you turn your head sideways, this is the end view

    This is the slicer bed and the blade...very sharp
