If you can't find the clip bushing anywhere, I have a solution that is inelegant but works, takes about 30 seconds, and costs pennies.
Take a paper clip (the plastic coated ones work especially well, but any paper clip will work). Bend the paper clip into a loop around the shaft of the beater between the beater part and the little disk near the top. Put the loop roughly in the center of the paper clip. Now, bend the ends of the paper clip (a needle-nosed plier works well here, but if you don't have one, be creative) into two little hooks. Next, string together enough rubber bands to stretch around the motor (under the handle) and reach from one end of the paper clip to the other (ask a 12 year old how to string the rubber bands together if you have forgotten). Finally, attach each end of the rubber band to the paper clip with the rubber band going up and around the motor.
The paper clip will ride on the little disk near the top of the beater shaft and the rubber band will exert just enough force to make it want to stay in. We have been using this method for a while in my kitchen.
If anyone gets a line on the clip bushing, please let me know. In the meantime...
