Help y'all! I just got some 10" conflat bolt rings, the type made for the rotatable fittings, at a surplus price but without the knife edge insert and I thought I could buy just the knife-edge inserts from Duniway or Lesker or someone. Well, it seems one can't do that. Lesker and Duniway (and Varian themselves) all tell me I have to buy the complete unit when I get anything. Suggestions? I can get some used flange blanks for $100 but these are the kind I would have to mill out to 8" to fit on my sphere.
