Where can I buy a blender part locally?

We need a new rubber seal for the blender – you know the “o” that goes between the jar and the blade.

The original one got caught in the blade and was destroyed. Shortly after that happened, Big E did a little surgery on something purchased at Marshall Hardware and managed to cobble together something that works semi-decent. The rubber has gotten hard and it no longer seals well, I’d like to get a bona fide blender part.

I can order online for 4 bucks for the part + at least that much in shipping. I’m in search of a local place to buy one of those o-ring rubber seals for a blender.

Try to find the part number and if that is not possible, measure the inner diameter (ID), outer diameter (OD) and thickness and call around to industrial supply houses (Grainger, Northern, Viking Electric, etc) or plumbing suppliers to find the same size. 

Blend away...

Dey Appliance up in the Air Park or W.A. George way out west might have it. It'll run you more than $4 in a parts shop, I assure you.

There's a 10% off coupon for Dey Appliance in the DNT Marketplace thing.

Thanks for the ideas. They are super helpful. And since our oven heating coil now needs to be replaced we shall be visiting at least one of these fine establishments ASAP.

We like our blender. It does a good job. Why buy new when I can repair something pretty easily: no screwdriver required?

L&M Supply in Cloquet has them.

One might also run an ad to buy a used blender.  You could dicker about the price and pay maybe $5.00 for the (new) one.
