Another frugal find yesterday.. [View all]

I was cruising around one of the local indoor flea markets and found one of these, it's a hand cranked meat slicer from probably at least fifty years ago..

I have a family member that likes to make his own hot jerky using peppers he grows in his garden, slicing the meat thin enough has been a problem for him with just a knife and well made meat slicers are remarkably expensive. He's been cutting the meat thicker and then pounding it down with an aluminum tenderizing hammer but that's considerable work and time consuming.

The unit I found is still in serviceable shape and very well made with a micrometer style thickness adjustment, I paid $15 for it and it will pay for itself with the first batch of jerky that gets cut with it..

Made in the USA, baby!
