Found this site while looking for information to repair my Hobart N50 which failed during a bread making marathon on Memorial day. Poor thing was made in 1948 and has been in the family since the mid 50's, faithfully cranking out goodies ever since. We had two of them at home when I was growing up, the other resides with my sister in Chattanooga, TN who is a pastry chef and chocholate maker.
My Hobart has an internal gear or broken shear pin and is currently starting to be disassembled for a complete refurbishment.
I am the baker/cook/bottle washer in the household and truly enjoy bread making. My other intrests are machine work and fabricating just about anything from metal (having a complete machine shop and foundry in the garage). Also an avid amateur astronomer and large format photographer. I am a Ham radio operator, Extra Class and VE.
