Default female IEC adapter

Okay this is a bit silly, but maybe someone can help.

I have bought an US model Crown K2 on ebay. Of course this comes with an US style (fixed) mains connector (nice thick, but short cord). I already have converted the PS to 230V/50 hz using a crown part.

I am reluctant to cut the cord and put European style mains male connecor on it ( I might one day want to sell it again), so I was hoping to make a special mains extention cord with a female US connector on one end and a male NL style connector on the other. Replacing the complete mains cord is a bit of a hassle (and I dont want to loose my waranty yet)

However I cannot find a reasonably priced female US connector. Or to be more precise; the connector is not so much a problem ($6-$15 for a 15 or 20A piece), however the shipping cost to the Netherlands vary from $40 to $50 (and about 25% VAT en taxes will be added on this). Also some inet shops require a minimum of $50 or more ordersize..

A few examples
Partsexpress has this Marinco for $12.50
But shipping will be $45 and a international order has to be $50 or more (excl shipping.

Here a 20A model costs only $12
Biu shipping to the Netherlands is $44 and must be paid beforehand with international wire transfer (CC not accepted!)

Here a nice 15A model for 6 euro at Elfa
Click the image to open in full size.
Shipping is 40 euro

Does anybody know an inet shop which charges reasonable shipping costs (internationally) on small orders like this? Say $10-20 or so. And ofcourse sells a US style female mains adapter (for an extention cord)?? That would help alot.
Is that all there is?

Have someone buy that for you at the local hardware store (and for a 1/2 of that price Parts Express charge), then ship that Global Prority Mail ($9.50) to you.

I can do that for you if you like. Just paypal me the amount.
