    Default Bushing repair for small AC motor

    I need to have the bushings replaced in a small 220v electric motor that is used as a fan in our oven (European maker). This part is no longer available, anywhere worldwide. Can anyone recommend a shop who can machine and replace the bushings. I have tried to use a modified different motor but the shaft length is a problem. I haven't been able to locate a shop locally who wants to take on such a small job. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Do you have any dims on bushing size?
    What material are the bushing made out of?
    Is there any issue on lead time for shipping or when the job needs to be done by?
    A picture may even help me visualize the job.

    Without knowing more about the motor or bushing, a lot of the small motors had bearings made from porous bronze for oil retention and were not simple round cylinders but rather spherical for self alignment. It may well be cheaper to replace the oven than to make new bushings.
