Re: Back feet for 335 scope

Why not "print" a foot and use that
to make a mold. Then you can cast
them in more robust material.

It can be done. I've 3D printed feet for the 465 based on this model I
"designed" based on the original feet:

functional but I wouldn't bank on them holding out for every day use.
Someone with a bit of 3D modelling ability and an original foot should be
able to craft a suitable replacement for the 335 too. Printed in something
a bit more durable would work and even if they weren't as good as the
original, you could have plenty of spares.

Hello all,

The feet on the rear of my 335 are crumbling apart, literally!

I talked to Walter at Sphere and he has nothing even close, and searches
on the net reveal nothing... so, I am coming to the group to see if there
might happen to be someone who has any extra rear feet (Tek PN
348-0425-00)
or even just one, that could be spared (or loaned?) to me as an example
of
a complete foot? I don't know if they could be 3-D printed or cast, but
I
don't have even one that is complete... mine are all crumbled.

Here is a picture of what it looks like (borrowed from the internet):

Thanks for any suggestion or help you can provide.
