Fleximasters are still available on the market in both U.S. and UK
in case you would be willing to replace your old one. You could use
your search engine to find easily multiple suppliers, e.g. in U.S.:

    <URL:http://www.artcity.com/flt-07700.html>
    <URL:http://www.dickblick.com/zz171/28/>

You could actually find these much cheaper from some of the framers
or smaller art suppliers. The only thing is that it might take a
week or two for deliveries from UK to U.S. and prices also vary so
it's worth spending some time comparing them before actual purchase.
