    WTB: Retaining Ring or Flange for Acme/Ilex #3

    I can get one from SK Grimes for $35 but though I would check here to save a bit o' cash if someone as an extra. Long shot but cant hurt to ask!

    Shoot me a PM if you have one to sell, thanks!

    You can probably find them for less at www.mpex.com. They pretty reliably have Ilex 3 and 5 flanges.

    They have a #5 but could not find a #3, I would much prefer a retaining ring vs a flange if anyone has one of those. I know they were made at some point as I just sold an lens with an Acme shutter that had a ring not a flange.

    I've got one I'll sell you for $100 and throw in the shutter and lens for free! =]
    Ilex 215mm in Acme #3 with ring, not flange. I was joking at first, but I really don't need it. I'm open to selling it if you need this.
