Near the rearmost end of each "moder ” style slicing machine incorporating a of.theears I6 there is riveted a button I9 which has ‘a shanki2ll of.smaller diameter than the’ diameter of its ?at head 2|. The head 2| is spaced below the ear I6 by the shank 20. An angle bracket 22 has its vertical ?ange bolted to the inner face of the wall I8 of the housing II and its horizontally-turned ?ange is located im mediately behind the two apertures I‘! in the slice de?ector embodying the invention. wall I8.

Fig. IX is a detailed view, in elevation, taken 55 shown in Fig. IV. The curved slots 25-of the openings 23 thus limit the movement of the de?ector plate I4 to ward the rear of the knife I2 and also, due to their curved shape, pull the de?ector snugly into position adjacent the wall I8 of the housing II. The position of the de?ector I4, relative to the 2,408,717 3 4 knife I2, may be adjusted by varying the position larged counterbored holes 27, the position of the of two machine screws 40a which pass through enlarged holes Ma in the bracket plate 33a and are studded into the face 39a of the drive hous ing means Ha. By loosening the machine screws 40a and ad justing the position of the bracket plate 38a, the angle bracket 22, and. thus the de?ector [4, may position of the pin 3411,- and thus of the de?ector be adjusted to make‘ the edge of the deflector.

The embodiment of theinvention that has been disclosed may be modi?ed to meet various re quirements. Y Having described my invention, I claim: I 1'.

The position of the de?ector Ma, relative‘ notches opening toward‘ the de?ector plate and to the knife l2a, is determined by the engage ment of an adjustably mounted pin 34a ina small hole 35:: drilled through the de?ector Ilia. The. pin 35a has an annular groove 38a‘ cut‘ in its,’ shank which is engageable by a spring clip 37a‘ extending ?rst vbackward away from the plate and then continuing‘ at right angl‘eslthereto in a direction. toward the rotary knife, and second members attached to the de?ector plate and hav~ > ing constricted shank-like:- portions that‘ are‘ en gageable: in‘ the notches - by movement of- the de'?ector plate ?rst. towardthe frame: and" then‘ to; riveted on the rear of the de?ector Ma‘ to hold? the de?ector in position. with the pin 34a engaged in‘the hole;35a.
