Default Deli Slicers Questions

So i am slowly getting into curing and want to get into cold smoking... so figure will start looking for some deli slicers.

Don't ahve a lot of money to spend on a toy, and wanted something decent so figured i will look for a used one. The only problem with that, its hard to find those model numbers on google (since they are a bit older).

Does anyoen have any experience with these units:

Rival - model is 1140V - 35 dollars (first picture)
Rival - model 65301 - 30 dollars (second picture)
Kitchen Selective, model #SL-50 - 20 dollars no picture

If anyone knows of anything regarding these it would be greatly appreciated.... also what are the items to look for in the meat slicer?

Thanks!

Don't know about the rivals but I picked up a chiefs choice 610 for $35 used but can get new for $100.00. Very happy with it from paper thin to larger slices. Very easy cleanup. Not super fast but I only use it every few weeks. Biggest things to look for are motor size, slice adjustments and ease of cleanup.

I have had a few different types of home food slicers and in general I am not to pleased with them. If you plan on using one a lot, them check out places like restaurant depot. They do sell small commercial units.

Thank you to everyone for the input... keep it coming

Imperfectutopia, don't have any of them... just found three people selling those slicers... debating which one to get (if any, or maybe go some other way).

Cast Iron Cleif, do you know what motor sizes are good? Easy cleanup is definetly huge in my book!

gotwood, what do you mean, light? Those are on craigslist :)

stephan, that's what i am kind of afraid of. But at the same time i am planning to use them when i do some curing (pastrami, buckboardbacon, maybe smoked cheeses) so i won't use it a lo, maybe once a month (if that). Commercial models are expensive, Figured would check with the brethren.

The Anchorman, yeah, those are of craigslist... just not sure, if they are good/worth it, and what to look for. If its even a good idea to buy used (god only knows what they used them for).

Soapm, see, that's something i did not even think about. When you say sharpner, is it build in? or something i need to buy extra? or as long as the blade can be taken of, i can sharpen it.
