WHEN YOU ARE ASKING ABOUT THE PARTS YOU MAY NEED AND ARE NOT REAL SURE ABOUT THE PART OR PARTS YOU MAY NEED,OR YOU HAVE THE MACHINE APART AND COULD USE SOME INFORMATION E-MAIL US AT email@example.com
YOU ALSO CAN LOOK AT OUR 1612,1712 PAGE MANY OF THE PARTS THAT ARE NOT ON THIS PAGE MAY BE ON THE 1612,1712 PAGE
AND ASK FOR A PARTS LIST WE CAN DO THAT ON A DAILY BASIS.
Here is some information I have passed on to others who have asked for some instructions on reconditioning the indexing system on all of the 1612,1712,1812,1912 Hobart meat slicers
The indexing knob being tight will take a little work
first of all you will need to dismantle the indexing assy
I would start by sliding the top rail away from the indexing plate and spring
now try and remove the 9/16" nut on top of the plate
after that is done slide the plate away from the indexing worm gear
now you will have to remove the stud that is in the gauge plate support rod
now the fun will begin if you have a small torch plate it on the protruding
cylinders that the gauge plate support rods go up and down on and
get a rubber mallet and start to get the whole gauge plate to com out after
you complete that feat start to clean up the rods and the cylinders that they go up and down in
do not use a file just cleaning solution and steel wool if possible.
make sure the rods will slide up and down freely before putting it all back together
if you have some white lithium grease that is a big help.
now stop using veg oil or any kind of oil except mineral oil on the rods along with the slide rods
I have included a parts list for you so you can check out the indexing section and get familiar with all this confusing dialog I have just given you
