Stupid question. Looks like I lost my power supply for my F8. Do I have to drop $30 on one or will other 12v adapters work okay?

Other 12VDC power sources can work fine.

F8 works with supplies ranging from 9 to 16V DC
F8n works with supplies ranging from 9 to 18V DC

Not sure of amperage output requirement.

I don't own one of these, but would guess you need to know which contact is positive and which is negative before using a third party power supply.

^ I read this as providing nothing compelling for most tapers (except those using timecode, maybe )

Same here.  I'm not going to bother with it.
