hey guys, ive got this older elec meat grinder and wanted to see if anyone recognized it/knew anything about maintenance on one.

best i can tell i think it is made by Intedge (based on pics i found) or General D and has a westinghouse 1/2 HP motor. looks like it uses #12 cutter and screens.

appears that I can oil either the motor or the gearing using that little flip top on the top.

any ideas what type of oil? how much? looking down into the oil hole it looks a bit crudy - has anyone taken the geared front end off to clean it?

thanks, im at a loss - cant find any good info on the net.

I dunno....I'd think I wouldn't chance just using something like Amsoil Redline shock proof gear oil. Maybe something like this?

I would guess a non-detergent grade of oil.

Somewhere in your area there has to be a electric motor service/repair shoppe that can give you an idea on how to maintain it. A few years an experienced tech serviced the motor on my 1941 model Hobart single phase 220 commercial grinder.
