  1. I have been looking for a larger slicer for a while. I found a Craigslist slice with just a bad pic. It said commercial slicer used. I sent them an email asking what size, what brand, what size and could I get a phone number. I got a responce the next day saying Idono, with no phone number. I sent another message asking again for a phone number. I got a number the next day. I called and was told it was about a 9" blade she thought. Every other question I ask, the answer was Idono.She said it was not where she was. She told me she would call me back the next day with more info........

        I thought about it for a min. and ask if I could come take a look. It was about an hour drive. She said ok. so over the mountain I went.

    This is what I found.

    So Ok I'm drooling[​IMG] all over it. The asking price was $200.00 cash. It was missing 2 of the rubber feet and the nut that holds the cover on the sharpener.

     I pointed out the missing parts and ask if she had a manual for it. She said no. I said ok I'll give you $150.00 cash right now for it. She said no she was pretty sure it was woth the $200 asking price. I said yes if it wasn't missing parts I' d that. But it does have missing parts. I'll go $175 and you won't have to answer any more emails and all of that spam. She came back with $190 is my bottom dollar.

      I gave her $190 and drove off with a smile from ear to ear. I then stopped at the resturant suppy and bought 2 legs for $2.30 each. Then a wing nut from Lowes for $1.08 CHA-CHING[​IMG]

    Now I need something to slice

    Happy smoken

    Congratulations! 12" = nice. I suppose you had your vette in the driveway the whole time you were saying parts missing.

    Mule, afternoon.......  How do you sleep at night ????   That is pure, artful theft.......      KUDO's on a really good deal.....      
  9. Nice find, at a steal to boot  [​IMG]

    That is my dilemma; I have nice slicer, the kind you find behind a deli counter and nothing to slice.
  10. seenred

    seenred Smoking Guru Group Lead OTBS Member should be ashamed of yourself, taking advantage of that poor woman...[​IMG]   I think I should perform a citizen's arrest and confiscate that contraband slicer immediately.  [​IMG]

    Seriously, nice score...I'm jealous!  I usually just miss out on those kind of deals...I'm the guy who always calls right after they sold it!

  11. the vette wasn't in the drive....The vette has pieces missing too!
  12. thanks everyone. I just did a batch of bacon last week. I need to find something to slice.

    Happy smoken.

    Great find! All the slicers I've found here so far are not that cheap! I'll keep looking!
  14. Wow, What a deal. I missed out on a Commercial Hobart about 6 months ago. A sandwich shop was going out of business and selling stuff off. They had the hobart listed for $350.00 and I offered $200.00, the lady accepted, then to my utter surprise and disgust, I found my wife had spent the money I had been saving for such a deal.

    I won't begin to tell how mad and upset I was.

    I just bought a putt putt 6" relic from an estate sale for $15 & now I hate it!  Nice steal man!

    Keep looking! I looked for better than a year. I found a couple. Lost a couple. Found a couple that was to far away or had a bad blade.

    Then I hit the jackpot.

    Go give the wife a kiss and say it's ok and move on.

    Happy smoken.

  17. Nope no kiss. I was afraid she would back out on the deal. I loaded and ran. Fingers safe always. I did a search in the search bar. Couldn't find a way to do anything with fingers other than dog treats!
  18. Dave, I sleep like a baby!!! I do dream about what to slice.

    [​IMG]What should I slice? It makes me [​IMG].

    Happy smoken.

  19. Red....Don't be a player hater.....I bought it just east of you.
