Looking For/WTB AO parfocal tube

#1 Post by MichaelBrock » Fri Dec 01, 2017 12:10 pm

I have been honing my lathe skills attempting to turn a parfocal photo tube for my trinocular AO 20 microscope. I'm starting to run out of patience. Does anyone have a spare one? Accordion to the ever-valuable xmission site I think it's the 1044 that I need:

There is an Ebay seller with one:

but he's the one that blocked me for asking him a question (and $38 is more than I'd like to spend).

Amazing this guy blocked me as well. When I complained he said it was because I had purchased prior and not made payment. I asked him to show me when and what as I have NEVER avoided payment on an item. His response-"If I blocked you - you deserved it".
I believe I have an extra tube. PM me.

I had a similar situation. It seems as though a question evokes a block.
Happy New Year.
