LadyCook61,
I purchased the Classic Mandoline, 10/3 mm blades version (37L). It came with a Guard already (the vegetable grab carrier).
Note this mandoline is also available with other cutters: 7/3 mm for strawpotatoes and 4.5/2 mm for julienne. I believe Bron sells the cutters separately to retrofit whichever model you buy.
This is the link from Bron's site: Bron-Coucke, kitchen hardware :

Thanks, Uncle Bob! I should have ordered the butcher's glove but completely forgot and I wasn't sure what size to get. I'll have pick one up at a store where I can try it on. I do have one of those thermal pot holder gloves that I think I'll use in the meantime. Can't wait!

I bought a Farberware one from the Evil Empir (wal-mart) for $10 bucks. It works ok. JUST ok. but considering how I beat up kitchen equipment, I couldn't see paying $100 bucks for one

Thanks, Lady! You got the dutch oven, and made that wonderful bread, too. It'll be some time before I can get a DO.

What are the advantages of a mandoline over a food processor with chopping attachments?

Is it because it's smaller and easier to clean? More chopping options as far as thickness, etc?

With most mandolins you can adjust the thickness of the slice. you can not usually do that with a FP.
