Here's a pair of used, nearly-new carbon motor
and springs for the great old Sunbeam
Mixmaster mixers, up through the model
12 (1967), and that were also used in

Quantities are getting really limited on these used brushes, and they're
getting hard to find new (mainly because newer small appliances don't
last long enough to wear their brushes out!). So if you
need a set or want to keep spares on hand (a good idea), don't wait!
