I had a large Star cutter similar to that. It did an OK job.

I got a Yankee Slicer. Does a much better job in my opinion. It’s a bypass cutter.

I've restored a number of slicers and plug cutters but the Yankee No.0 is by far my favorite. Here's one I did last year.

Wow… you went whole hog on that restoration. It looks great!

The Star anvil cutter did an OK job, it was something that I got cheap, repainted and sharpened the blade as best I could.

The Yankee cutter allows me to get fine cuts, about 1/16”, consistently.

I've looked at some of these on ebay and I'm really interested in purchasing one simply to appease my first world problems. I'm ready to pull the trigger, but there are a good amount of them available to choose from. Does anyone have suggestions of what to look for regarding one that might work a bit better than others?

if you’re handy and can refurbish it, there’s some really good deals. I’m not handy. I live in a small apartment. I can’t do the refurbishing so look for some thing in that case that doesn’t need refurbishing?
