I have an old Hobart 60 Qt mixer (H-600) and recently the mixing bowl won’t stay in place. The bowl is manually raised by turning a hand crank and it will slip down a little while running.
I put a #10 can and a box under one of the arms to keep it up, but was hoping someone could tell me a more permanent fix.
We have had that issue for over 10 years. We just lock the handwheel in place with a bungee cord after cranking it up.
yup! we use a bungee after we crank it up too!
We used to use an empty gal with a handle filled with water and hooked it to the crank handle
Thanks for the ideas everyone! I was able, after many hours of research and careful planning, to fabricate my own “Hobart Bowl and Lift Unit Stanchion”.
Our health inspector would require the bare wood to be sealed. A good coat of paint would suffice.
