jfyoung45 thx for the explanation, love seeing what a clever handyman can come up with!
Today is a simple question.
Are the numbers on a slicer universal/standard for thickness? If Brand A is 1/4inch thick cut at #5 is brand B the same?
deanlorensen One of the most frustrating realizations of my time here is that those numbers relate to NOTHING of value! I don’t get it, why put them there if they arent centi or millimeters or SOMETHING but I’ve tested a bunch of different ones (people in Cabellas were looking at me a little funny) not just ours and they are all crazy. Now, it is closest to Milimeters but it isn’t exact. For example a 6 on our new ones are 4.9 mm
Jonathon We have two vintage Hobart slicers at the shop. Although they are the same brand the numbers aren’t consistent with either machine. We’ve had the same discussion a few times and always end up scratching our heads. Lol
Joe Hell It makes NO sense! Someone could easily differentiate themselves by having their slicers actually indicate something. And they could make it so you could recalibrate the knob if it gets out of whack.
