I just got a good deal on a Hobart N-50, but the only problem it has no bowl and no paddle, whisk, or dough hook. I’ve seen those listed on Global Equipment’s website, but they attachments are all $50+ and the bowl’s pretty expensive too. Does anyone know of a source of these that might be a little cheaper? I also noticed that the Kitchenaid bowls bear a striking resemblance to those of the Hobart, and I know Hobart used to make the Kitchenaid mixers. Can you use any of the Kitchenaid stuff on a Hobart?
Kitchenaid is made by Hobart so the parts may well be interchangeable. As far as a source for attachments, I would just try to find them on ebay.
