  which Yaesu one did you get? I'm going to guess the GS-050, I wanted a 
TB-25 sometime back
and they were not available then either, but I found the the bigger Yaesu 
GS-065 was a match for the TB-25
bolt pattern...  this was on a RT-832 btw but if a TB-25 was suppose to work 
on a RT-936 then the GS-065
should fit.
