Cleaning the Machine
The "Razors Edge" beaming and fleshing machine was designed and manufactured with a food grade stainless steel blade assembly. This makes cleaning easier and eliminates corrosion and the problems that come with it.
When cleaning the blade assembly first loosen the (3) blade screws. The blade screws are very small so we recommend you do not remove the blade screws completely because this will increase your chance of losing one. Remove the blade carefully. We recommend using gloves or pliers to handle the blade safely. Also remove the blade mounting plate by just loosening the three (3) screws. Do not remove them. Next remove the blade guide by using an allen (hex) wrench to loosen and remove (2) hex nuts and the upper clamping collar. Use any household grease cutting cleaner to clean all parts. The lower clamping collar can be left attached during the cleaning process.
If the "Razors Edge" beaming and fleshing machine is not going to be used for an extended period of time we also recommend removing the blade rod tube along with the previously mentioned parts. By removing the two hex bolts at the flange base of the blade rod tube you can slide the blade rod tube up and off the blade rod. Clean blade rod tube with bore brush provided. Wash all parts separately. All parts removed from the cutting blade assembly can be put in a dish washer or washed by hand. The blade rod cannot be removed from the machine but can be wiped off with clean cloth with household grease cutting cleaner. (IMPORTANT)
