Berkel Slicer – Model 8H
Built in the period between 1928 and 1948, the Berkel 8H model is considered Berkel greatest technical innovation.
This model, whose shape apparently resembles the now “classic” line of Berkel 7, is however improved in every detail.
The protective covers for the sliding pin and the carriage feed screw ere introduced. The old square screw, in fact, is replaced by a helical threading one and the comb system is fixed with a more reliable loading wheel. The carriage itself is equipped with an interlocking fastening system with a stop knob and a manual rapid feed system. In addition, the chrome-plated metal slice adjustment “clock” has been replaced by a more precise one with a bakelite knob. The carter-covered slide pin has also been thickened.
The machine drive has the classic solid flywheel with the words “Van Berkel’s patent” no longer in relief but with a decal.
The blade, 370 mm in diameter is mounted on the rounded and resized arch-shaped shoulder with the thick white opaline glass top. The carcass of the slicer has all rounded edges.
