Hobart N50 vintage copper bowl insert not fitting?

January 10, 2013 - 5:52am -- ratatouille

So the N50 finally arrived back from MixedUpJake, after having a full motor rewind and everything... ( long story.. more on that later)


and for some reason, the Copper insert bowl i bought off ebay doesn't fit in the bowl.


The bowl fits the mixer perfectly.


Is there a 'different' bowl this is meant for?  a 5.5 qt bowl???



sorry, i don't know where else to put this...

Kitchenaid HOBART (i.e. it can actually handle dough kneading) Mixer in excellent condition. Comes with bowl shield, paddle & whisk attachments, and dough hook, plus 5 quart stainless steel mixing bowl. Photos are available upon request.

Beautiful off white color with very few blemishes. Simply stated it’s a workhorse.  Lack of counter space near an outlet and a recent lumbar disc herniation make it necessary for me to say goodbye to this reliable and favored member of my appliance family.

Dough Mixer

Hello everyone, it's been a while since I have posted here. I saw many questions here about dough mixers, some of them unanswered. So when I was presented with the same challenge, I decided to post my experience, in case anyone finds it helpful.

Kitchenaid Artisan Mixer Problems with Kneading

June 12, 2012 - 7:12am -- TastefulLee

Hi. I have owned a Kitchenaid Artisan Stand Mixer with a twisting lock bowl for about 3 years. I have used it successfully for soft doughs such as cookies, and general mixing purposes.

Since I began making bread about 7 months ago I have tried to use the dough hook for several different recipes of several different hydration levels, and every time I have the same problem - once the dough starts to come together it the adjustable arm (the one the dough hook is inserted into) begins to float wildly about, even though I have the switch in the locked position.
