This slicer would actually be pretty decent if they would have designed a better way of attaching the blade. The plastic "coin-operated" nut that I loosely quote, "holds the blade on" (becasue it does everything but hold the blade on) ... grabs on the plastic blade mount when the motor is turned on, the blade spins in a direction that tightens the nut and then proceeds to loosen the hub from the threaded casting that the hub mounts to. After a short period of slicing, the blade begins to wobble, and just get looser & looser. I spent well over an hour trying to figure out a way to remedy this, when I finally found that removing the little black lock washer under the allen-headed screw in combination w/ using heavy-duty thread locker on the Allen screw (use care to barely snug the black screw) and then allow the thread-locker to setup overnight. This seemed to fix the problem so the screw won't back out during operation. I don't understand why the lock nut is under the screwhead, or why they couldn't have used thread-locker during assembly. So far it has been working fine, but after my first attempted use with everyone waiting for the brisket to be sliced... I was about ready to toss it out the window. Needless to say, if you're not mechanically inclined, let's just say, if you don't know what thread-locker is... buy a better quality slicer! You might just be wasting your money on this one ;)
