Our family had one exactly the same. As a child, there was always something satisfying about the sound of the metal cutting into the potato and then the 'clunk' at the end when the handle reached the end position

Dodge, I have a modern plastic chip cutter too but the metal one is far more substantial and cuts just the right thickness for the chips.

That contraption looks more like a waffle maker, you make the square waffle, then the device makes the holes in the waffle.

No, I don't own it - I found it on Ebay and thought you might like to start a collection of vintage chippers .....

Do you "chip" any other root vegetables with your machine .....

Yes, occasionally, for carrots but l use the plastic one for those as it cuts thinner.
When l make pasties, l sometimes use the metal chipper to cut up the carrots and potatoes and then l cut them into cubes.
There’s a method in my madness!
