I love vintage machines! I had no idea what era of slicer I was driving to VA to get, but "it's a Hobart" was enough info for me to be willing to listen to the Toy Story trilogy right behind me several times over and over.
It's a model 411. I haven't had much chance to research this thing yet. It's in good working order with just a couple parts missing.
A quick search revealed that what is availible is not inexpensive by any stretch but then again, it's a Hobart!
I think I'm going to take some time to do a full resoration on this puppy and really make it a show piece. One that get's used alot.
I think I'll start a separate thread to share my progress. Right now I'm going to go clean it up a bit and slice some Ham I smoked last weekend.
This is going to be so cool.
