Help finding 35mm film insert for Minolta 5400

Hi -

I just purchased a Minolta 5400 on eBay and the seller failed to inform me that the film holders were missing (so lot of good it is doing as a film scanner...)

Does anyone have an extra 35mm film holder or know where I might procure one?

It is model FH-M10. This is the Konica Minolta Elite 5400 (version 1)

I'm happy to pay...

There is a seller on eBay that seems to have access to FH-M10/SH-M10 holders. Do a search...

He's from Russia (yeah, I know!), but I ordered the holders a month ago anyway. I wanted an extra set as I want to make a glass holder, but didn't want to risk ruining my original holders. To be honest, I was expecting this to be a scam, but I actually got the item as described. Shipping took 3 weeks, seller provided the tracking number a day after my payment. I left positive feedback (my eBay username is 'boarchi'). I saw today that he's got another set for sale.

Slide film holder is identical to my original SM-M10 holder, FH-M10 is a bit different. The cross bars between frames are like those on FH-M20 holders (for Minolta 5400 v2). But both holders work OK in my scanner. New negative holder even allows for scanning of a bit larger area of a frame.

I have no connection to the seller and this was the first time I've dealt with him. I'm not responsible if your transaction doesn't go as smoothly as mine...

I'm actually willing to sell my 5400 + film holder for spare parts as lately it hasn't been working very well.

There was someone, I think from Finland selling the 5400 film holder but the cost was something like $150 last time I looked.
I bought my 5400 from an Amazon merchant a few years back for under $300 and I remember that at the time he left out one of the holders, or sent 2 of one and none of the other, anyway at the time they could still be bought online but I think at the moment Ebay is the only solution. Too bad someone can't make replacements for these parts, it's a really fine scanner and takes up so little space.
