Looking for a part to replace the factory flosser head on a Vendever cotton candy factory machine

Is this it?
Interesting contraption. However, looks like the internet links to Brady Distributing are all null and void.
As for VENDEVER?
There’s THIS news from six years ago:
An email address in that article will take you to someone in Taiwan who will support them.
After my brief ten minutes of researching them, I don’t see much hope.
Maybe someone who works for PartTown can do better. Did you try contacting THEM:

FWIW: We really don’t deal with vending machines here. Mainly commercial cooking, warewashing, food prep and refrigeration stuff. An entirely different market.

Every employer I’ve had would eventually send me to the wild jobs that no one would touch, and the business owner cried long enough for my manager to send in the Last Hope tech. (Me )
I’ve worked on t-shirt drying lines- long tube/box electric ovens. Lots and lots of contactors and elements and fans. Unfortunetly, the guy loved my work and it was thereafter *my* customer. So he had me work on all the other crap in his shop.
I’ve advised on an electrostatic spray booth “oven”- an oven the size of 2 stacked 40-foot cargo boxes. It had been micky moused over the years so much, I refused to do anything unless I brought it back to factory specs: it had 3 giant thyristors at one point, 1 had been removed and the wires just jumped! I finally tracked down a company who had replacement heater assemblies, that would require a 2-man mobile highlift to get up near the top to service safely. And were hideously expensive.
I begged off on another giant oven of some kind. An inspector said it needed a thermostat and high limit, as there was no temperature control! Nothing available from the defunct manufacturer. I explained I *could* install an oven thermostat, and high limit that I had in the truck. But I’m not opening my company up to *that* lawsuit when the place burs down.
BTW, I read somewhere that Gold Medal heat bands and parts will fit on that vending floss machine above.
