I wouldn't mind finding one of those either. eBay or one of the American forums would probably be your best bet, their market is much bigger. Of course with time and patience you might find one locally.

From online photos I've spotted at least 5 different blue plastic blade banks that came with the Fatboy. Some might be a mismatch. It would be interesting to know why.
