Hi,
 Ive used these planes for a long time ,haven't been able to get blades for years.What i do is grind down Stanley blades.Hold the blade with vice grips and don't let the blade heat up too much as it will lose its hardness :-)) :-)) :-))

I was just about to say try a david plane blade , they look simular .
If they fit then the blades are easy to come by.
Or throw it in the bottom of the drawer and buy a david plane  :-)) .
