Vintage Hobart Coffee Grinder Restoration

Vintage Hobart Coffee Grinder

I am completely obsessed with vintage coffee products, from packaging to machines. Here is a great restoration of a beautiful vintage Hobart Coffee grinder from Vintage Vending Inc. Just pt their site to see some before and after pictures.

The Hobart grinder was the first piece of equipment developed by the company back in 1897. These grinders have become very collectible by coffee enthusiast. We will keep an eye open for a nice Hobart coffee grinder for one of our Upright Coffee locations.

    I have inherited a 1920s (I think) Hobart Coffee Grinder.
    No 477779. Does anyone know how to find information on these machines?
    Year it was made, color, etc. I would really appreciate some help.

    I have just purchased a beautiful Model 3430 at an estate sale. The paint and chrome are nice and shiny. The glass panel is intact and the light works perfectly but the lettering has long ago faded. When I run it the motor gets hot. I need to replace the motor. It will grind coffee fine but only a handful at a time. Any one know where I could get a motor? (1725 rpm, 1/4 hp). I would like to use one from another machine but if I can’t find one I guess I will have this one rebuilt. Or if you would like purchase this one as is I will send you pics and videos.

    I recently received a Hobart 3430 which my Father used in his grocery store back in the 50’s and 60’s. It is painted a gray/silver color and I was wondering if this machine had been repainted at one time or did Hobart offer them in different colors. I want to restore this machine to it’s original condition and have the colors as original.
    I would appreciate any information you might have on this.

    The restoration of this grinder is actually incomplete…there is supposed to be red rubber banding running along the bottom edge to act as a vibration cushion and also decorative….just in case someone wants to get it perfect….
