A few months ago my Mother-in-law gave me this Hobart 411 slicer. I committed to restoring it when I found time. I finally got around to starting the project this weekend. There are a few pieces missing. I found a couple on-line. The rest I'll have to make myself.
This is what I'm starting with. Notice the adjustment handle is missing, found that one on-line (not cheap). Part of the mechanism underneath I'll have to make.
There's a big dent in the motor housing that I'll need to pound out.
The sharpener is missing also and not available. That's going to be a tricky one.
So now I've disassembled and started polishing parts.
Time consuming work, but sure is shiny! This is going to take a while to complete but it should be really nice when it's done.
