Question about Hobart Food Mixers
The Hobart/Kitchenaid model 4C Stand Mixer was produced between 1961 and 1977.
This unit is now a vintage piece chased by collector. Parts dealers do not sell parts anymore for such an old model.
The parts must be purchased on the second hand and vintage market, best source is Ebay. Put 4c mixer or kitchenaid 4c to find parts.
The bowl is easy to find, it is part 4162158, regular retail price for replacement is $44. buy the glass one on Ebay, that will be the original one mounted on first models.
Here Ebay list.

Here also a forum where you can contact more Kitchenaid vintage appliances owners or collectors.
The dough tool is not even easy to find on Ebay. Try contacting Kitchenaid and see if they can give you a compatible part.
If they have the original one (unlikely) , then do not be surprised if part price is over $30.
If you find a 4c with tools for spares on Ebay , buy it, and resell the parts you do not need. The whole mixer with bowl and one tool is worth over $50.
The original owners manual can also be purchased from Kitchenaid/hobart

I realize this post is very old, but for others who may have the same questions, the 4C unfortunately never had a dough hook or paddle made for it as it wasn't strong enough to hold up to thick doughs. I'm sad about that!
