Default Vintage Berkel Meat Slicer

Picked up a Vintage Berkel meat slicer I found on Craigslist yesterday for $60. Needs to be cleaned, but it runs very quietly and everything is there except for the catch tray. I figure I can put something together for that from a quarter sheet pan. It's circa 1950's I think. It probably weights in at 80 pounds, so it's one of those that's built to last and not move once I figure out a spot for it.

Here are some pics!

I think this is going to be the same. A labor of love though.

Nice dude! You all keep finding these treasures on craigslist and I can never find anything. It must be this part of the country. Craiglist sucks around here.
