Meat Slicers!
« on: December 27, 2011, 12:37:11 am »
Hi all!

I have a dilemma,I need a meat slicer for my Hams and Bacons,I have seen the SWAN SFS100 which looks ok ish,but I am always one for buying once-and buying right.The Swan is quite cheap,I can get one for under £50.00,however,does anyone know if this would be at all suitable-I have a heap of Ham and Bacon here-well over 100KG,I am thinking along the lines that because it is cheap it would not last,Some professional slicers,you pay for the name so any input would be most welcomed please.

I have found one on the fleabay,industrial and looks really heavy duty and with courier cost's and such would be about £150.00 second hand.

One is 360419552119 called Omega.There is a Buffalo 370569888386 though around £180.00.The Swan is 160703400063 but I can get this cheaper from another website.

I was hoping to find a good second hand one for about £100.00-delivered! or maybe I am dreaming?! :D

So when does the slicing begin??

(I still have a freezer drawer full of pig skin, several mason jars of lard, plus a bucket of lard waiting to be melted back down and made into soap....will keep you posted!  ;) )

I'll let you know!

So far, rendered lard and some bottles of Boots caustic soda awaiting a happy union...
