    Flange for 210mm 5.6 Schneider Componon

    I got a really great deal on a 210mm 5.6 Schneider Componon, with one catch, the flange was missing. This is an older lens I would guess '60s vintage (not the Componon-s), with a 60mm mount. I have spoken with S.K Grimes and they are the easiest option but also a pretty expensive option (it could end up costing anywhere between $45-$75). I also called Schneider and they don't have any record of this lens(which is weird to me) so they are useless. So does anyone here have any ideas?
    Thanks

    Dear oper33,

    Search for sources that will repair large format lenses (there should be plenty of threads in the Large Format Photography forum) to see if they have one to sell you. This source seems to get good play there: http://www.flutotscamerarepair.com/
