I have a low-end slicer, not cheap cheap, and recommended on here for a beginner model. The problem is, the carriage assembly and the plate the meat presses against while sliding toward the blade are somewhat over-flexible; they won't stay in place, especially the plate. I wind up with uneven slices, thick one side and thin and jagged on the other side.

Any tweaks I can try to help out? One I thought of, is greasing the plate so the meat has less friction while sliding.

Comments or thoughts?

If thats a Nesco fs 250 I wouldn't consider that a cheap slicer . If you're getting a tag end on the bottom that's normal . Flipping like said above helps with that . If your slices are uneven there's something else going on .
 
Pinch nose here has a 1970s vintage Oyster slicer. It's plastic but it works great. Now granted it only gets used a few times each year, but considering its age. It's more than earned it's keep.

Light weight and it packs up nice and tight. I store it in kitchen cabinet.

I have the same slicer not a fan, as others have said keep flipping the meat. It helps but is not 100% cure. That Vevor looks interesting. I have a vevor stuffer with no complaints.
