I see post from time to time for folks looking for slicers .. etc.
check out www.rciauctions.com This is a resturant equipment auction house that seems to have most of their auctions in the north east.
This am i found 3 different hobart slicers for auction.
Seems that these items sell for 1/4 - 1/3 of new value .
They sell pretty much anything to do w/ resturants at different auctions.
The prices are great for someone close to that area.
The shipping is what will get you.
