    I'm trying to identify this accessory drive hub on a model FC14 D Fleetwood (Lan Elec) bowl chopper.  One drive is marked "Fast" and one is marked "Slow".  I don't recognize the hub stlye and am wondering if it is a standard hub or proprietary to the maker (now out of business). EDIT:  The unit was made in England in 1988.

    The hubs caliper to about 36mm/1.44" in diameter and about 70mm/2.7" to the bottom of the flat drive recess in the bottom of the hub bore.  Any light you can shed on this would be greatly appreciated.




    Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

    Dan, the shaft diameter is roughly 27mm/1.08" diameter

    The slot is about 23mm/0.9" deep into the end of the shaft and about 14mm/0.55" across.

    Thanks

    Me neither, Dan.  I'll keep plugging away when I can but I begin to suspect that it's proprietary.  If I can change the title of the thread maybe I'll try to get help from the UK side of the family as the unit was made in England.

    Steve, that's the right manufacturer.  If I could even find a downloadable copy of the operator's manual or part catalog that might help.  I found the specification sheet for the unit but it only mentions having dual drives, not the type of them.

    Thank for looking.

    Hi Lance, I have emailed the company, with a copy of the link to this page and asked them if they can help.

    Hi Lance, sorry this is the reply I have received.
    Hi Steve,

    Unfortunately Lan-Elec are long gone now. They were part of Crypto Peerless who were bought out by Electrolux but these machines have been obsolete for a number of years now.

    Sorry we cannot help on this occasion.

    Kind regards,

    Thanks Steve.  I knew they were long gone but hoped that I might still get some info.

    Have a great day.
