The rotating contact on the switch for my cake is about ready to snap off.  See attached pic (the one contact has a crack and is bent up 90 degrees).  Does anyone have this part, or a whole switch available?

Jeff, do you think someone could silver solder your piece?  It would conduct well and I don’t think there’s enough current through it to melt it.

The switch clicks are much crisper and more defined now too...when I got the fan speeds 4 and 5 were kind of soft and didn't really snap into position. Just figured that was just the way it was. Must have been that part getting ready to break.  Plus it only lined up with off about every 4th cycle around...now it lines up perfectly every time.
