Default Hobart Model 612 Chopper Refurbishment

My refurbishment of this Hobart Model 612 Chopper (meat grinder) is mostly complete. A period-correct restoration would be amazing, but I am very oriented toward function. Thank you to those members here, especially nickelmore, who answered my questions. The Practical Machinist Forum was also incredibly helpful with this project as I believe it to be the greatest web-based resource for reliable information on Repulsion Start Induction Run (RSIR) electric motors, which these Hobarts use.

I am not certain of the early history of this unit, but based on serial number research, I believe it to have been manufactured in the 1920’s or 1930’s. I believe my maternal grandparents owned it and used it on their farm at least as early as the 1960’s, but death and time obscure prior history of it. It may have come from one of my great-grandparent’s farms, but I have been unable to verify.

I received it with what may be the original grinder attachment, and I will probably have that re-tinned. However, for now I will try the all stainless Alfa International attachment (12 SS CCA) in the photos.

I apologize for the blurry "before" photos".

A piece of history risen from the ashes...Think how many of these units have been disposed of because "they weren't worth fixing"...

Excellent work

That is awesome work! I like the stainless bling as well.

I had some pieces "hot dipped" with tin that I was real happy with but for the grinder parts you may want to look at a place that does it by electrostatic.

I think the pieces will need to be re-machined (threads, auger drive, etc.) if they are hot dipped. Something to ask your tin plater.

Have to throw some points for saving a Hobart for your next generation.

Thank you for the info on retinning. I asked customer service about requirement for machining at Metal Coating Company (Ohio). Their response was ambiguous. They hot dip.

Based on what you mentioned previously, I suspect you used Archer. Is that correct?

Yep that is who I used for a pastry knife for a 20 quart Hobart. Treated me very good and seemed very reasonable.
