    Where can I get a 72mm lens flange?

    I'm getting a 300mm Rodagon but it doesn't have a flange. Suggestions?
    Bromwell sells new ones for $65 but seems like there ought to be one out there for much less. After all, it's just a metal circle with threads.

    Try S.K. Grimes.

    I'd expect a custom Grimes flange to be more expensive than the Bromwell flange.

    I can't speak to what Grimes pricing is currently. The last flange I bought from them was $18
    Art is a step from what is obvious and well-known toward what is arcane and concealed.

    I doubt if they will be that expensive. Call and check.

    Definitely call and check. They price them by size, and maybe they're cheaper if they are a standard size like Ilex 3 or Ilex 5. When Steve Grimes was alive a flange about that size was likely to be around $50, but the last one I had done was a large flange back in January, and it was a good deal more.
