American Slicing Machine Company Parts

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
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.

I love the red color of  your slicer. Did you find the missing part? I have a spare that I think will fit your machine - PM sent.

 

Here is mine:

Just to update this thread: I sent the missing part to Bakerboy7, it fit his machine with the addition of a spacer he bought at the hardware store (very slight design difference between his machine and mine). Now he can safely use his slicing machine.

I have a machine that looks identical to yours that is missing a plate along the meat receiving tray.  It is the vertical plate along the back side of the receiving tray directly below the cutting blade. I wondered if you could give me the measurements for length-width-and distance from the top for the notch that connects it to the cast iron base. Thanks!

Hello Sir

 

 We purchased the same machine a few years back at a flea market and have been looking for a new blade and a wrench to remove the old one. any information you can supply would be great.

 

thanks

Not sure how old this baby is, but I'm guessing late teens or early 20's.  My wife's grandfather opened a butcher shop in 1920, and we're going through it last summer and find this thing sitting under layers of stuff.  Since it still worked, I decided to restore it.  Everything is original, including the belt, except for the power cord (now grounded), the switch and two bearings on the blade shaft mechanism.  The only real problem is the blade.  It has a 1.5" crack from the edge in toward the center.  I've turned the machine on with the blade off, and it works perfectly.  I won't turn it on with the blade attached, because I'm fairly sure the sharpener would cause a major shrapnel event.  I have not been able to find another blade anywhere.

Anyway, I've attached some before and after pics.  Comments and/or criticisms will be appreciated.

Great restoration.

My personal preference would have been a different color. But that purple is an accurate color. I've seen some with a purple.

I just got one. It was going to be thrown out on a moving job. I plan on restoring and painting a red maybe.
How did you ground it?
Any special way to clean the self sharpening mechanism?
Mine turns on and seems to function fine. I was thinking of using evaporust to clean. Or maybe having it media blasted.
My motor has a little cap for oil I assume.

Any advice?

I got this slicer for free and trying to find a blade cover for it. I'm having zero luck and it seems to be fairly unique with the horizontal meat tray. It's also missing the sharpening cover bit that is more cosmetic to me
I haven't been able to figure out a model number or date of manufacture. Berkel hasnt been any help either. I have rewired it and in process on removing and cleaning everything including using taps and diespecially to remove any nasty bits in the threads. Also trying to source the 1/4 by 28 threaded rubber feet (4) for it. May have to use bolt through rubber feet. As I can't find those either. Original meet catch tray is gone also. Whew I guess I'm missing more than I thought!
