I know. I have been hunting one for months with no luck. That is how I ended up here hoping that someone might have an old machine that they were parting out or no longer wanted.

There is a market for a vintage appliance junkyard, and there might be one, but I have not found it yet.

Do you know the model number even if it's an old mixer?

We have a member here named leolady who is an expert on Kitchen Aid mixers and collects the older models. I suggest you send her a PM and ask for help.

I was thinking of her too, Andy. I think she has even showed pictures of older KA's. Haven't seen her around much lately.

Spotco2, you could go to Leolady's profile page and send her a Private Message. Even if she isn't here, she may get an email letting her know there is a message for her.

The other thing to do is to Advertise for the part on Craig's List, etc. if you haven't already done that as well. Sometimes people will hold onto things and not know why until they see that someone needs it! I am an expert!

Yeah. I see. Nasty course thread that makes it unlikely any modern cap will match. If worse comes to worse, this guy make these and other parts, mostly for vintage fan restorers, but at least he'll be sympathetic to keeping a vintage machine in service, and he doesn't see to be too expensive.

I did speak with Darryl and he was confident that he could machine out the part for a very small fee. I was also talking with someone else on WACEM Yahoo Group that thought they might have one. The person on WACEM found the ones they had and sent one out to me.

Thanks for the help everyone.

I maybe late to the reply .. but I found this on Goodmens, it says for older models:

KitchenAid mixer motor brush cap. Fits older generation KitchenAid mixers K45, K5, KSM90, KSM150, and variations of these models.

k45 cap

hey, did you ever find this part anywhere. I desperately need to get one also and I think I may have exhausted all my options.
