Don't get your hopes up, but I have a funny feeling I have a spare one
Can't check right now but will let you know tomorrow.

No luck I'm afraid. I have 2 A4000s (both have bars!) but I'm sure I have a spare one.
Before I go hunting in the loft, can I just check what you are after is the horizontal bar pictured here:

If I find it, it's yours. It's not like I have a use for it

Unless you absolutely have to have the original, this is a pretty easy piece to fabricate. Go to the hardware store and buy a strip of aluminum. Have them bend over the two sides for rigidity. Hopefully the hardware store near you does this - the ones here do. When you get home, use a hacksaw to cut away an inch of the bent side, drill a hole on each end that matches with the screw holes on the case. Put foam tape that is a bit thicker than the gap between the top of the daughterboard and the inside bottom of the new bar. Once installed simple friction will hold the daughterboard in place.

This would work great for running the machine but I would probably support the back of the daughterboard when installing cards - the force required to insert Zorro cards is substantial and probably greater than the friction hold.

Seems like it should be a good candidate for 3d printing, mostly it's just used for holding the busboard upright. The drive rails will be somewhat supported by the other side and the weight of the case and monitor (hopefully LCD instead of CRT) will be absorbed by the front and back of the case. Though flimsy, it would still be better than nothing.

Looks like fabbing one up or 3d printing one is the only way to go!

Back along I saw a few knocking about for sale and I just didnt need one
Typical in Amigaland.

No luck I'm afraid. I'll keep my eyes out and let you know if it turns up.
