Home Diving Arm Mixer

Thought I'd throw this out especially since that fellow was trying to make his own. These seem great for the home baker.

Myself I've got a full-size one, but I haven't quite moved into my new bakery so it isn't hooked up yet.

That's pretty neat and scary at the same time.

We had an old diving-arm mixer in the bakery in Germany. We used it exclusivley for "Schwarzbrot". The gentle kneading action was ideal for mixing the cracked rye and molasses dough.

I thought that mixer looked pretty agressive and would imagine it would heat the dough through friction.  I may be all wrong on that but I have never seen that type of mixer at that speed.

What does the bottom of the diving arm look like?

It's shaped very similar to the bottom end of a hockey stick.

Not necessarily the same model.
