I had this food processor and lost the blades to it. It was just a little more to order a refurbished one from overstock as it was to order the part. I figured this way I'd have an extra bucket as well. It works just fine - no issues with the refurbished part, and great timing as my old one is starting to go now (after several years). Note that it does not come in the exact packaging a brand new one does, so as a gift, it might not work so well.
