My restaurant uses a Hobart model 1712 slicer. We are trying to sharpen the blade with the sharpener designed for this model. Unfortunately, we have not been able to figure out how to properly attach the sharpener to enable it to function.

There is a website called onesharpstore.com that specializes in food processing appliance parts. I saw the hobart model 1812 listed there just today (03/07/09). They even have a number you can call direct. 772-770-4383.
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.
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!
