I had the exact same problem with the exact same part once before.   I 
grabbed my 68-50 pin adapter from home to help out another department that 
was in a pinch.  After a month of my Indy being down due to their not 
buying one of their own, and repeated calls.  They complained that they 
were too expensive. (I think I paid around $10) I removed mine from their 
Indigo 2 and told the manager that he needed to buy one, and that I didn't 
have one he could borrow any longer.   I did give him directions to Fry's.

I hate to be hard nosed, but if I can buy a part for one of my systems at 
home, they are not too expensive for a business to purchase.  No matter 
what department they are in.  "We have no budget" doesn't fly.
