A Nemco Easy Tomato Slicer will make short work of preparing a large quantity of tomatoes, but once the blades begin to dull, slices will not come out as clean and the work can become more difficult than necessary. Instead of buying an entire new unit, you can replace the blade assembly to regain factory-sharp cutting edges!

Hi, I’m Chris Tavano for Tundra Restaurant Supply. In today’s episode I’m going to show you how to change your blade assembly for your Nemco Tomato Slicer.
First you’re going to need a crescent wrench to loosen up the nuts on the side of your blade assembly. Lefty-loosey, righty-tighty, then once you’ve got those bolts out the blade assembly won’t come out quite yet. You’re going to loosen up the wing nuts on the side of the cutting board so we can get our pusher block assembly off. From there your entire block assembly should slide out. Now be careful. The sharp parts of the blade are facing the inside of towards the pusher block itself. We want to take that one out.
Get your new blade assembly. One thing to keep in mind is the distance of the holes from the base of the hinge assembly itself. The smaller distance should be going on the bottom. Again, remember just look closely and you can see the beveled edge of your actual blade. That’s going to be facing away from you towards the Brand name. It slides right in. We’re going to grab your pusher block again and notice that there are grooves and that’s going to slide right in to the groove of the cutting board. Gently slide it into place. Once you’ve got it in all the way we can go ahead and get our bolts right back in the side.
Here you can see as I’m screwing in through the unit itself the bolt is actually securing itself into the blade assembly. For this stage you need to get them finger tight. Then you can get your crescent wrench and be sure we screw righty-tighty. The last piece you’re going to need is your end cap for the cutting board to go back in place so your pusher block doesn’t come off. It’s pretty easy. It only goes in one way.
That’s how you replace your blade assembly for a Nemco Easy Tomato Slicer. Watch your fingers. If you have any other ideas for do-it-yourself videos please comment below!
