    +1, except mine are batonette. Jamming the tip of your thumb into it is the worst though. That hurts just lookin' at it.

    So which one did you get? The classic "Bron"?

    I used " QuikClot on it, stuff is expensive but works.

    I have two bron both with different blade set ups. They are old, but I have kept them sharp and clean for years. It drives me nuts when the guys bang them up on me. So this new prep cook was cutting up sweet potatoes and wrecking the mandolin, so in a rush I grab the potato with wet hands and wam! I should have known better, as dumb as trying to catch a falling knife.

    +1 I've rebuild several. Just be careful not to bend the cutting plate or remove too much metal. Also, the new hardware is stainless and plastic, so no more rust!

    yup that's what I have done. Thats how I got the different blade setups, think they make 3 other setups other then what comes with a new one? I got the thinest set on one of them, cuts a 1/16th and one 1/8 th" stick. bUT

    I have never found the parts cheep. Cutter set is like 50-90.00 bucks, new blade 30-40, handle crank thing that always bends 25, Parts not cheep. Unless you know "the Place" thats got the "good price"?
    I wish some one would make a set of teeth that were made of sharp tempered steel, that way thed would bot get all bent up, that drives me nuts! Wonder if the steel they use to make the teeth blades is temperable, that way just take the teeth off and heat treat them?
