I have seen these on eBay quite often. That's where I got the one for my 8/e. :-)
Also, it is possible to rotate the cam that engages the microswitches behind the key so that the machine is "always on" and you can control the power with a powerstrip. That's how my 8/e was when I got it. It doesn't damage the machine but allows you to power it until you can find a key. -- Ian
