Just thought I would how TRF Team Ullmans latest aquisution. Its a 20qt Blakslee mixer. I cleaned it up put a new power switch on it. New power cord and plug. And put Stainless Steel machine screws to hold it all together.

That cabinet was $99 at Lowes and has an Oak front which I rubbed some Tung Oil on. We put a 3/4" MDF top on and then laminated to top. Its got 1.5" white Poplar trimming on it also coated with Tung Oil. There is a 1.25" thick base on it with 4 250lb ea. locking casters. It rolls pretty nice with a 150lb mixer ontop. So far we have mixed once with it and it runs great!! Can't wait to mix on out new cabinet.

Man I used to work in a pizzeria. You could do some real damage with that thing Ben. If you spend a half hour on that thing, your mom can freeze a months worth of pizza dough.

Hobarts are nearly indestructible! Have fun mixing your propellant Ben!

Ben's new mixer appears to be neither a Hobart or a Blakslee, but a Blakeslee.

Spelling aside, it looks like this beast can handle a rather large batch of dough.

Pizzas for everyone!

Awww, you wouldn't want to ruin that beauty by mixing caustic chemicals in it, would you?

Paint Job is next on the list. My dad suggested we get it chromed. That way every 2.5 sec (the time it takes for the beater to make a rotation) your blinded

Where can you get that cover for the top? Ours is missing the cover that covers the attachment outlet.

I used appliance paint in white.

I have a spare cover somewhere......Mine is a custom machined bar of aluminum with an O-ring insert. My mixer had a leaky front bearing seal, so rather then replace the bearing and seal, I just machined a plug with o-ring so no more oil leaks from the gear box.

I'll see if I can find the original cover for mine. If so, I'll make you a deal.

I would appreciate that. I seem to be having the same problem. There is a small oil leak and it appears to be coming from the front attachment area. Its very small but its there.

Ahh, the stock cover will not eliminate that. It fits loosely with no seal. You'll want to fix it because it will mess up your cure calculations. You'd be surprised what just a few drops of gear oil can do to your finished grains.

Ask me how I know......Mine was leaking from the same place, just a small leak.....

I can machine a clone of the one I made for mine.

Contact me by e-mail if you'd like a quote.

Thanks,

Spongy/soft grains with oily spots on the cut faces.
