    I have an old mixer that's missing a bowl and some accessories. Does anyone know where I could find parts & accessories for this mixer?

    Thanks!!  I'll try to get a picture of it later. Would this be worth anything if it's in good running shape?

    Reynolds two speed mixer Ser. no C53796  Reco1/4 HP, 115 volt 5.0 amps, 22qt.  60 cycles, 1725 R.P.M  1 phase

    thoseguys, morning.....  Not much info on google.... others have the same questions as you....  One site directed someone to this site....

    Thanks Dave, I'll continue to research. I contacted one reynolds company and they ended up not being the original manufacturer. I'll post my findings here but if anyone can help, please do. 

    If the bowl is that expensive then it may not be worth buying one to try to up the value of the mixer if I were planning on selling it.

    Shane, that is a dandy....  If you found a bowl that fit in the holder, diameter wise, brackets could be welded on, and you would be on your way....  At the very least, you could mix up  pancake batter for the cub scout breakfast....[​IMG]....  Dave

    Thoseguys, My local restaurant supply house carries all kinds of accessories for kitchen equipment( New and used), eBay would be my 2nd choice and we seem to have several local companies (Salvage Company’s) that sell used kitchen equipment. Looks great….Does it have the gear for the grinding attachment???

    I'll consider that but I don't think I'll need to weld anything because it still has the bowl clamps in tact. haha yah the scouts would love this thing!
    I'm not sure, does this model typically have that? If so, it's in perfect working order and runs very nicely. It's just missing its bowl and probably some attachments.

    Just curious if anyone else knows of any websites that would sell a compatible bowl for this mixer. Thanks

    Thoseguys, there would be a chuck in the front, it is hard to tell, but I think it would be on the piece with the 7177 on it….. I'm checking with my restaurant supplier to see if she can get accessories for you....and I'll let you know...SB

    Thanks, I will definitely try them as well.  These old machines are so well built it's great, but finding parts is sometimes impossible.

     My restaurant supplier suggested this company, but it is in Louisiana and I really am not sure if it would be worth shipping or not for you, but here is the information and if I can help PM me….ShoneyBoy

    FROM: Karen Edward..... No, and unfortunately even when I tried to search it online the only thing that comes up is how no one can find parts/accessories for them because the company has gone out of business.  Probably your only shot in the state is Ivy’s Used Restaurant Equipment – his number is 225-926-9268. 

    Thanks----

    Another thought is, why not see if a bowl made for another brand mixer would fit or modify it to fit ? SB

    Guys, try going to older Cafes and Restaurants , ask if they have any old parts or old bowls. Kinda like a scavenger hunt , a lot of the 'older' Truckstops have basements full of old stuff. All they can say is "no".

    Tj , a lot of machine shops and Welding shops usually have scavenged parts ; never know what will turn up with just a little time-investment. However, I am kinda bold - and don't mind dumpster-diving[​IMG]

    Have fun and...

    I saw your request for info on the Reynolds 22 qt. mixer.  Reynolds Electric was sold in 1985 to Middleby Marshall Co of Morton Grove, IL which I believe is now is Elgin, IL & manufactures the mixers under the Titan name.  I was Service Manager for Reynolds for 10 years in charge of repairs on all mixers until the company was sold.  I was the only woman to have the job.  I am now long retired.   I can tell you that the bowl you need is part #2904, 20 qt tinned steel bowl or #5963, stainless steel bowl, which I think may be the same bowl now used on the current 20 qt mixers.  I don't know if the current bowl holders are the same as the old 22 qt holders, but if you can find a bowl, you could have new holders welded on.  The serial number tells me that your mixer was manufactured in January 1955. (Next Jan it will be 58)  Try some restaurant supply houses,  They may have a bowl.  As far as the man who is looking for a gear, no such luck.  While Reynolds kept all the old parts, when Middleby bought them out, they took all the old parts, sold them to a service man who only a few months later passed away.  No idea what happened to the old parts, probably tossed out.  You will have to have someone make a new gear for you.  I hope this will help you to find a new bowl for your mixer. Now I know why I kept an album with info about the Reynolds mixers.  Good luck in finding a bowl.
