This was easy once Igot all the parts. The mxer wouldn't mix and when I opened it up the drive gear between the motor and the planetary drive was missing some teeth. Turns out the bearing, which was sintered bronze, had broken so I needed a new gear, new bearing, and the jumping gear had broken the housing so I needed a new housing. The new gearing ( really a bushing since there are no rollers or balls in the "bearing") waws now steel and the molded plastic housing is now cast metal. Some new grease ( I had to buy a quart can of grease to get two tablespooons) a new gasket and put the screws in and we're back in business. Total repair time 10 minutes, total time to get all the parts 3 weeks,
