BDR Breadbin

Postby geordy55 » Thu Nov 28, 2019 3:18 pm

Ok, you knowledgeable people. I’ve picked up this BDR breadbin and can not fathom how to remove the casing to get to the mech. I’ve been told that a screw holds the handle in place and once this is removed then I should be able to lift the case off.
However this machine doesn’t have any screw on the handle, it does appear to have a split pin/cotter pin internally. Is this what holds the handle in place ?
Any advice on how to open this up would be appreciated.

From memory there is a hex bolt on the outside in the middle of the handle and a few latches inside on the base that spring back to release the hood, but it's a while since I looked at mine so memory may have lapsed.

Hi TF, there’s nothing on the handle externally whatsoever.

All the ones I have owned have had the hex bolt, this may have been changed later in production as I reckon they would have issues with kids nicking handles. Cannot believe the pin needs to be banged out as quick access will be needed for simple maintenance of the machine......the obvious solution will be there somewhere |/XX\|

No, it should be held by a grub screw in the spot you indicated. If there's no screw you should be able to remove the handle, but it might need a bit of prising to get it off. Likewise the hood.

The one I had was quite simple to remove. If you look where the handle boss enters the inside of the case, there was a ring cut into the boss where a lever operated plate dropped in, anchoring the operating arm. Lift it up and move the handle out with a bit of jiggling and, if I remember right, two similar levers, one each side, anchored the case to the base. All three levers had to moved to the inside of the machine, freeing the case.

Well one extra long 1/8” Allen key on order. Still not 100% convinced it is a grub screw holding it in place but there’s no real other possibility.

I wonder where the hole has gone in the end of the handle boss?
Better order one of those too.

If it's any help, here are photos of mine which is the same style as yours, so at least you know what's going to eventually pop out. The stub you can see in the photo is not the screw, it's the key that fits into the mech. My guess is it's only the plate that falls into the groove on the handle that's holding it in. As you can see in the photo, the screw on mine is fully in and has no grip on the mech and causes no obstruction (perhaps the one on mine is just too short,it does not look original).

I think these handles were indeed a later addition, as when I look into the hole in the case with the handle off I can see the screw thread that would have taken the bolt through the boss.

I do not tighten the screw (or loosen it for that matter) on the handle. The handle is secure and works perfectly without the screw, and is a one second job to remove the case at any time that way.

Both machines I have are relatively simple to release, two levers internally lock both handle and hood. If indeed yours is similar: lift levers, pull handle from case and lift off hood.
