Re: Back feet for 335 scope

Hi Phil,


Yep, that's me. And I did get your email and have sent a response.


What I do is entirely non-destructive. I just need to take measurements from the existing foot

Hi Jeff,

Are you N0dy? If so, I just emailed you about your 400 series feet.

If your process is nondestructive, maybe we can get Lee H. (on list) to
volunteer his one surviving complete foot for measurement...

I have a picture of the foot, upon which I have drawn (crudely) the
measurements, that I will put that in my folder on the server:

If it comes to pass that Lee would allow you to measure and print out
feet... he should probably be the one to receive your kind offer of
printed feet, not me, but I would buy a set from you.

Hi all,


I'd be willing to undertake the 3D modelling and printing with a durable nylon material if I could get my hands on a reasonable existing foot to take measurements from. I've already developed models of 465/475 and 453/454 feet that are near identical replacements for the existing feet.


In exchange for the use of your foot, I'd be happy to provide a set of nylon printed feet gratis to upgrade your existing feet. I would then make these feet available to the community through the same channels I use for my 465/475 and 453/454 feet.


PM me if interested.


Thanks,
Jeff

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.

Phil
