Small appliance parts?

Looking for recommendations for supplier of parts for old (as in 60-yr old! :) ) Hamilton Beach stationary mixer.
So far I've not had a tremendous amount of success in small appliance parts in general, so thought I ask if anybody here has suggestions (other than google which I've been doing w/, as noted, some but not outstanding success). I'm interested in sites/vendors/etc. that anybody has used w/ success.

I'd just take what's left of one brush and take it to a GOOD hardware store (not an Orange-Colored Store) if they have drawers of Jandorf stuff you ought to be able to find a replacement set for under $5.
