My son lives in Ohio and was checking CL there. Came across a listing for a Hobart 1612E Slicer for $175. Called the guy and found out he had 2 Hobart Slicers and would sell both for $300. He couldn't find a plate on the one so he's not sure which one it is, but who cares! So he bought both and he's shipping one to me! They are in good shape and work. Even if shipping is $150, it's still a great buy for me cause the cheapest I've found them on CL here in CO is about $800.
