You know why I'll never end up with an electric bread slicer? Even if I had the room (which, for the right price, I would), every deal I find on ebay ends up costing too much for shipping. $80 to put it on a pallet, $70 if you don't have a forklift and loading dock, and another $200 or more for actual freight. So $300+ just to get it here, which is getting close to what I'd budget to buy one. Makes me sorta sad.

I really should stop looking for them on ebay.

I think I'm picturing the complete wrong device. I have such a device, and it fits in a small box in a drawer....

I have a rotary slicer (like the kind used to cut ham) that works well enough for the home loaves, but the cuts start to get uneven as the loaf gets smaller. A true industrial bread slicer is a huge device that weighs a whole lot, has a couple dozen cutting blades, and costs over a grand.
