Here's where to go to. Usually had most of what you will need.

info@dandysales.com

He bought all the parts and stuff a few years after Panzer closed down. The rubber disk was not available the last time I checked. The company that was making then for him quit and with out that part!!!!! You can make your own from some stock rubber bar that a few companies has.

Seems like it is McMaster Carr. I sort of got lucky when I bought one Panzer and he had a couple of extra and then I had ordered 2.

I like your Avitar thumbnail pic. I restored one of those a while back. Was the Montgomery Ward version with the Lauson engine. You could almost pull out tree stumps with those things.Donated it to theZagray Farm Museum in Colchester, CT.

  I know this isn't a Panzer subject but just thought I'd throw it in.
