Olde-Tyme electronics repair shops where the owner has horded every usable piece from every item that's come through the door maybe?
Maybe search for some 'old time toys' user group? One that discusses and preserves such items?

Call your local university engineering department. They should know who can help you out.

Or on-line hobby suppliers.

Spent the day operating a Bobcat for the first time. No problems, but I was prepared for anything!

Are we going to see where you put the Safety Third sticker on the Bobcat?

Microwave turntables use plastic gears like that. If you can find a turntable that used a 60 tooth gear you may be able to buy that at appliance repair site such as partsdirect.com.

Tami tried to operate it, but she couldn't trip the sensor in the seat- too short or light. She was bummed.

Odd. My wife is as small as Tami, and she doesn't have any trouble operating them.

I wear a helmet for all kinds of outdoor activities involving wind and snow and cold. It's amazing how long you can work outside when you prevent the loss of heat through your head!

It wouldn't work... I had no problems.

Probably for the best.

You can probably get an igniter for 50 bucks or less and install it yourself. You can also start the furnace manually with a BBQ lighter. Don't recommend it..but it can be done.

Whatever you do-ask for the price before some small time scamming POS furnace repair shop (Parker HVAC) rips you off for 300 bucks.
