CAUTION! When slicing bread with a knife be careful not to place your fingers in line with the cutting action of the knife. Do not allow children to use this product. Handle with care, knives are very sharp.
If you ever have any questions, issues or problems with your guide please call or text my cell phone: 315-868-3453 or email me at "firstname.lastname@example.org". Give me a chance to make things right. Don't be surprised when I just say hello upon answering. This really is my personal cell phone. I'm 74 and this is my hobby not a money grabbing business.
This combination "Horizontal/Vertical Adjustable Bread Slicing Guide" by Mystery Lathe, is designed to accept bread loaves up to 5 1/2 inches wide. It will cut slice thicknesses from 1/8 inch up to 1 inch thick using a horizontal or vertical slicing method. Be advised that very thin slices 1/4 inch and below are difficult to obtain on certain softer loaves of bread.
To use your guide, adjust the slice thickness by simply loosening the four wing nuts using your fingers and move the bread tray up or down. Tighten the wing nuts to hold the guides slice thickness in place. When you have your slice thickness adjusted, to slice horizontally place the guide on its anti slip mate. To slice vertically place the guide into the slot on its base. The guide ships with a anti slip mat that is placed under the slicing guide to stop it from sliding on your countertop while slicing. Tools are not required to set up your guide for use and it is quick and easy to do. As you gain experience in the use of the guide, you will be slicing your bread like a pro every time.
Notice in the pictures, where your knife will contact the guide as you finish slicing your loaf vertically, I have placed solid oak in a vertical direction to aid in prolonging the surface of your slicing guide. It is extra work on my part that you will appreciate as you use your new slicing guide.
The guide and base lay flat together for easy storage as shown in the pictures.

Videos are available showing the guide being used by going to “You Tube” and searching for “Mystery Lathe”.
Each bread slicing guide and base are hand crafted by myself in Lincolnton, Georgia from solid 3/4 inch oak lumber. The guide will last a lifetime with proper care. Just clean with a damp cloth. DO NOT SOAK IN WATER.
The finish used is food grade mineral oil that meets US FDA requirements for food contact surfaces, and is safe for all food preparation surfaces. The penetrating quality of food-grade mineral oil brings out the depth of grain in wood and helps prevent drying and cracking.

A few words of advice:
With the 5 1/2 inch (over all width is 7 inches) guide I use a 12 inch bread knife.
The guides cutting slots for the knife are 3/16 inches wide. If you are going to be using an electric knife make sure you check the thickness at the tip of the blade where the two blades are connected together. If it measures 3/16 inches or greater you will not be able to get the blade into the slot to slice your bread.
The bread needs to rest on your counter and cool down to room temperature. I find that the longer it rest the better it will slice. Note: The guide can cut slices as thin as 1/8 inch thickness, not all bread can be cut that thin. The minimum thickness you can obtain has a lot to do with the density and softness of the bread you are cutting.
Use caution while slicing with a knife to avoid injury. Knife not included with guide.
