If you only need a feeder screw then just go to a hardware store and get one with threads, the head of the screw wont matter as long as it doesnt stick out. If you need a new gear then you need to call cabelas. They will get you a new gear and they are pretty inexpensive. you may even want to check the internal gears of the grinder to make sure you didnt break a tooth off of one of those before you call.

I think you should be able to use it with this but it will all depend on the threads of the attachment. More than likely they are different because the burger press is made for the commercial grinders

I asked one of the sales associates at the store last week and they stated no as the spacer is too thick. Since the space is plastic, he stated you could try to grind it down to 1/2 the thickness and that might work.
