percolator needs new electrical cord ... where?

Posted by vieja (My Page) on

I love my old Procter-Silex glass percolator but the detachable plug-in electrical cord end is crumblimg & I can't find a place that still sells the detachable cords anymore ... tried appliance & electrical dealers to no avail.

Any ideas where these cords may still be made/sold? Most new percolators have the cord already built in. My glass one (& two spares!) I bought over E-Bay & dearly love the clear glass ones (one even lighted up when perking!)

Thanks for any ideas!

Woods Industries (sold at major hardware stores)

they make cords with different spacing.
is yours 1/2" spacing, both pins are the same size ?

1/2" spacing between pins:
