Hobart meat slicer repair
I think this is out of this chatroom area, but I thought I would ask, perhaps someone may be able to help.
My friend was given a Hobart 12 inch meat slicer, by a relative, it's maybe 20 years old, or older. The model number is gone ? The only thing wrong is getting the thickness cutter dial to work right. It was off when he got it. and when I reinstalled it, the meat platform will travel out for a thicker cut but won't return back to zero or # 1 thickness. This works on a worm gear 45 degree arc,type gear. As much as I tried to adjust the knob, it runs out of travel and pops the knob off.I tried to locate the worm gear in differant positions but the same results occur.
Now I doubt if anyone has had experance with this but I thought I would ask
The next step is to take it into a repair shop. but I was just wondering if there is a trick to the adjustment of the worm gear. Yes it sounds easy.
and all it takes is a screw driver to turn the little screw. I hate to see him pay big bucks for a minor adj. I told him I would ask the DIY guys.
