Berkel Slicing Machine – Model 21-22-23
The Berkel 21-22-23 slicer models were built after 1928 and until the start of production of the 31-32-33 models. The use of these machines was limited exclusively to England, where Berkel’s fine slicers were used to cut bacon. This model was developed in the factories of the newly founded Berkel’s & Parnals on the basis of the earlier Berkel 20 model. These machines have an innovative carriage feed system, with exceptional mechanics.
The carriage slides on rollers guided on one side by a rail, but the real genius is the feed mechanism: it is with a worm screw placed under the carriage, regulated by an arc-shaped slice regulator with a cam inside. This operates a small lever wich works together with connecting carriage movement rodes; the classic solid flywheel moves all the system; on it, there is the relief inscription “Berkel’s & Parnals”.
The blade is 370 mm in diameter, mounted on the arch-shaped shoulder with white opaline glass top.
The sharpener is the well-known Berkel classic with a painted cap and front grille. The great particularity of this machine is the back glass where the name of the shopkeeper is applied.
