Re: i want to buy some oil to lubricate my hobart slicer...
If you can, remoove the blade - very carefully. Clean everything where you can. It's a virtual trash holder under the blade. Where the blade mounts, you can use mineral oil to lubricate the bearing. If it makes any contact with food, it won't hurt you.

below is a copy of an e-mail from Horartservice.com. I searched the web forhours for the correct oil and could not find any info so I e-mailed Hobart.
The Planetary is a different part from the transmission andthe sight glass on a M802 is for the oil in the transmission.
The answer that Hobart gave is not an NSF oil. Ineeded the oil for the planetary section on a model M802. Even the directionssay that it is normal for a drop of oil to occasionally drip from the seal.That is where the dough hook attaches.
I am in the process of researching the oil and Exxon / Mobildoes make a NSF version. I just need to find somewhere I can buy less then a 55-gallondrum. The above mixer only uses 6 ounces.
Take care and stay safe
Hobart E-mail follows
Hobartuses "EXXON SPARTAN EP-150 (6 oz)" in the M802 planetary. Hobart part #102973-13. This IS NOT a food grade oil. If you mixer is leaking you shouldhave it serviced.

You have a gear with broken teeth or one sliding out of place because the brass shims are eaten up. Hobarts have what is called a planetary, round head where the grease caps are, and there are no clutches for this planetary. These units are not made to change gears while unit is running (#1 problem of gear failure) (#2 is overloading the bowl) Hobarts need a really stiff GREASE, not oil. If you decide to take the planetary apart, get all the syrup out and replace with a stiff axel grease. It is a very difficult job replacing a gear & ALL the shims. The round head where the grease caps are can easily be removed to do this.
This is the deal jason,get a rubber mallet,mineral oil and a mapp torch.If you look at the guage plate this is the part that the meat/cheese goes on you will see 2 rods that connect it.Heat the rods up and put on mineral oil.Hit the guage plate down while turning the knob left then hit it up and knob to the right ,keep doing this and apply plenty of oil .It will be good as new!
you can call your local hobart branch for the part number,but you use lithium grease in the unit.in order to change the grease the transmission needs to be opened and so does the planetary. i service these mixers alot i work for hobart.if you need any more help/questions let me know.
