- Is it normal for a model 3-C to have a model 4-C bowl/attachment plate?

- Does anyone know where I can find a service manual for the model 3-C? I did find one for the K-5SS.

- Are there any stores which specialize in stocking replacement parts for these vintage mixers or would I have to look for a broken one to harvest parts from in case anything breaks?
Have you looked for print off-able instruction manuals on-line. I found one for an ancient appliance that I acquired recently.

Our commode is attached to indoor plumbing. The inside loo. And no, Andy will never live it down! We won't let him! And in spite of his quirky habits, we still love him.

If you are still looking I found these links when I was looking for some thing else. Hope it helps.

A presenter on QVC UK said that modern attachments will fit all KAs including very old ones but don't quote me on this.
