The manual operation of the machine is via a closed flywheel with an external diameter of 380 mm. and inside we can see the writing applied and executed in decal "The Auto Scale & Slicing Machine", while in the first part of the production a flywheel of the Italian version of the Berkel model 7 with embossed lettering . The slicer Berkel model 10 is provided with an accurate adjustment of the slice thickness to 15 with a snap-action clock and has a covering to protect the worm without addition to the automatic slicer, and has many features both in form and in the mechanics of the Berkel model 7.

The decorations are strictly performed through the application of copal paint decals, avoiding any type of mystification, such as airbrush decorations, stickers or any other type of fantasy decoration.
