Model 12


The flywheel slicer model 12 was built in the period between 1946 and 1958 in the Italian factory of "The Auto Scale & Slicing Machine", the company that at the time was responsible for importing Berkel slicers. The Berkel model 12 slicer is a variant of the other italian slicer Berkel model 10, on which is used a blade of 370 mm . The manual operation of the machine is via a closed flywheel with an external diameter of 380 mm. and on the inside we can see the writing applied and executed in the decal "The Auto Scale & Slicing Machine". The slicer Berkel model 12 is equipped with an accurate adjustment of the slice thickness to 15 positions with snap-on clock and has a metal cover to protect the worm screw, which in this model as in most European models is 2 principles . On the shoulder is fixed the knife shield assembly automatic. This slicer has many features both in the form and in the mechanics of the Berkel model 7. The slicer Berkel model 12 is equipped with an articulated arm of the open type and the plate of the stainless steel plate and has a total carriage travel of 310 mm. The slicer Berkel model 12 was originally painted in red color, or metallic gray and black and the metal parts are originally chrome-plated, naturally in the restoration phase we respect the colors in the original formulas using new generation paints. The slicer Berkel model 12 requires a 250 mm support. front - 320 mm. rear - 460 mm. length having a total space of 660 mm. in height - 750 mm. in length - 640 mm. in width. This special work tool was often used directly on the workbenches, but was optionally provided the original pedestal. The slicer Berkel model 12 has a net weight of 100 kg.The slicer was supplied without any supporting support, but optionally at the request of the buyer his original pedestal was supplied, where the slicer could be correctly positioned in every point of the room without creating impediments on the work and be cleaned more easily and be enhanced even more. This slicer, like all the flywheel slicers that have been restored and sold by The World's Best Slicers, is restored exclusively with the exclusive use of original antique decals respecting the color tone and supplied with its original pedestal, avoiding trivial copies. .
