I purchased this Mandoline some 25 years ago from Williams-Sonoma. At the time it did not come with instruction booklet. Anyway... I never used it and put it away. Got in the mood to take it out of its hiding place the other day. Watched a very helpful video on Bron website and downloaded instructions. I was still preplexed until it suddenly dawned on me that everything was the exact opposite of every illustration and video I saw. IF you could get it to sit properly on its legs and turn it upside down it was fine. Was wondering if I got a defective product initially (25 years after the fact!) or I am going crazy. Did they possible redesign this item? Thanks.
