Looking for parts for a Blakeslee mixer

Hi to everyone in the forum - this place is a great resource, been reading for a while, and this is my first post.


 


I recently acquired an old (really really old) G.S. Blakeslee 20 quart mixer.  When I acquired it, it came with a whisk, but no dough hook or paddle.  I've looked high and low, and for the life of me I cannot find the correct parts to fit my mixer.



Has anyone ever come across a mixer with this type of attachment?  I'm stumped and would really like to get a dough hook and a paddle.

I suppose I should throw this out there too - when I got the mixer, it came with a spare bowl and two spare whisks that don't fit.  They don't appear to be hobart, and I've never seen this exact connector either.  I'd love to send them to someone that could use them - my guess is that they are 20 quart and 30 quart whisks, and a 25-30 quart bowl.

I am looking for a 30 qt. bowl so I can try out my Blakeslee mixer.

After research with GS Blakeslee, it seems as though I may be out of luck.  This mixer was manufactured in 1947, and they don't make parts for it any more (suprise suprise).  I guess it'll be relegated to light whipping tasks.

Are you sure that's a Blakslee mixer? I have a Toledo. They used to make mostly scales, then merged to become Mettler-Toledo, but for a few years they made mixers. I have one that I'm in the process of rebuilding.

Try onesharpcompany.com  Call their 800 number.

When I had a problem with a large mixer they requested pictures, identified it correctly and had the parts I needed.

Good luck.
