Before the “project police” pull this one, it is in fact made of wood, yew to be exact. It’s a replacement bushing for a bread machine bread pan. Even in Canada we can buy these machines dirt cheap these days but, in our experience, they always fail prematurely because they use a cheap plastic bushing for the padle shaft. The bread pan is otherwise like new. Getting a replacement bread pan seems doubtful, no parts list came with the machine. A close examination revealed that the paddle shaft is exactly 5/16” in diameter. And I was able to make the body of the bushing the right size using a 1/2” Veritas “snug plug” cutter. The refit leaked (water) slightly at first but it is good now and the machine is now cranking out delicious (nearly) homemade bread.
