A hardware store would carry a three prong replacement plug. These are heavy enough for power tools. I cut them off stuff I throw out and save them for times like these. Any old computer cords around?.

Before you cut the plug off, bare the wires and mark them if they are not color coded. Make sure the wires go to the correct prong. Today a lot of products need the third plug to operate.

Dump run with some wire cutters.
