Thanks for explaining.

I have an imitation Magic Bullet which is ideal for what I wanted it for, BUT the O-ring gasket on the flat blade section disintegrated into my smoothie after just two uses.

Amazon US [or rather one of their marketplace traders] sells all spares - packs of four O-rings, spare blades, extra goblets etc. Magic Bullet themselves sell a pack of extras, but I don't think they sell the O-ring gaskets, which are the things most likely to need replacing, but at $1.99 for a pack of four through Amazon that's not a problem.

Well it is for me, as they don't supply outside the US.
