Vixen Half Pier For AP2 Alt/Az Mount

http://beaconhilltelescopes.org.uk/ might be able to help?

I would have thought that the 'main' retailers might have linkups to suitable machine shops?

e.g. Altair have their own range of adaptors so they must be made somewhere?


For my own use I made a solid aluminium Gem45 to SW HEQ5 adaptor. Anyone with a lathe/mill would find it an easy task. But folk have also used 3D printed adaptors so long as there are steel bolts all the way through. 

Trivial for me to make I'm sure but under doc's orders at the moment so couldn't even lift an ali blank.

Maybe try machinists on wherever they might hang out?
