Four Pack of Handmade Stainless Steel 27 Gauge Replacement Wires for Our Large and Extra Large Cheese Slicers.
If you have our 1st or 2nd Generation Wire Cheese Slicers from 2019 – early 2021, you may be interested in our latest handle version. The newest versions have a tad shorter walnut handle allowing the bolt to reach further out to hook the slicing wire, so you do not have to bend the bar down as much to pre-tension your wire. Remember that a tighter wire cuts best, but don’t overtighten 😉

To replace your wires:
1st, Remove the old wire. You may need wire cutters to do so depending how and where it broke.
2nd, Pull the bar out of the board if you need to remove any attached wire on the bar side.
3rd, Take your new wire and slip the larger loop on the bar by pulling the inserted bar out until the wire can slip around the end of the bar, then slide the bar in till the groove on the bar lines up with the slicing groove on the board.
4th, Make sure your handle bolt is lowered as close to the board as possible. This is accomplished by using a 3/8″ standard wrench to lower the locknut closest to the hook end by twisting counter clockwise, then do the same for the locknut on the other side of the bar until the two have the bar firmly grasped tight in between. Most of our slicers are pre-tensioned enough that adjusting the locknuts is only needed when a wire stretches out and loosens.
5th, You may need to bend the bar a bit to get the bolt hook to snag the wire (our slicer bars are pre-tensioned). After the wire is hooked, you may need to adjust the two locknuts to tighten your wire. Remember that a tighter wire cuts best, but don’t overtighten 😉
