"Reco" Mixer
« on: October 03, 2011, 10:46:19 AM »
I've recently come by a "Reco" 22 qt. mixer made by a company called "Reynolds Electric Co." The mixer is in need for some TLC, but I cannot seem to find any info on it, or the company that made it. It resembles a Hobart A200. If anyone knows anything about this make or the company, I would appreciate the info.

Thanks

The link posted by c0mpl3x is the same mixer (except mine doesn't have that fancy "Lost In Space" paint job). I am mainly asking to see if any one here has heard of them before or has any info on the company that made them. Google isn't my friend this time, I can't seem to dredge up very much.

Thanks for looking

Do you have a link to the company? I see Reynolds Bros. for the sewing machines, but I don't think its the same company as Reynolds Electric Co.

Reynolds electric company doesn't show up in any searches I have made. This is the only reference I have seen.

Many thanks for the continued help. I would love to find a manual for this thing (probably not though).

Its not these guys is it?

Unfortunately, I don't think it is. The company has only been around since 1976.

I joined a Yahoo group that collects electric mixers to try and get some information. Apparently there is very little information out there about this company or the mixers they made. Reynolds Electric made table top mixers as far back as 1921. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/WACEM/photos/album/664361431/pic/642102247/view?picmode=&mode=tn&order=ordinal&start=1&count=20&dir=asc

The only info I could find out about my mixer was some patent information about the gear changing mechanism.

Thanks for all the suggestions so far. I am going to go about restoring this thing. perhaps I'll post the progress here. If anyone out there might know something, or runs across another Reco mixer, I would be grateful to hear about it.

Thanks again
