    I'm looking for a source for small carbon brushes for my Sunbeam
    electric shaver. The brushes are about 1/8 x 1/8 x 3/8. My local store
    who used to carry these no longer has them, and a Google internet
    search has come up empty.

    Does anyone here know of a generic source for small electric motor
    brushes? I find lots of suppliers for large brushes, but none for the
    small motor market. Would this be something that hobby shops might
    carry?

    thanks,

    A hobby shop is an idea, if you can find something close you should be
    able to file it to size.

    Look for a place who sells slot cars or R/C motors/parts.

    My local ACE Hardware store has motor brushes back in with the nuts
    and bolts. They're in those pull out drawers.
