I scrounged around all my old bars till I found what I needed for the most part, I am also looking for a supplier for these so if you or anyone else finds them please share!

That is a really good idea. I know a machinist, maybe he can mill some up for me.

They are easy enough to find in the UK.

Try searching for marine stainless steel ring 15mm 3mm.

Thanks, I found all the uk stores.. I am happy to deal with them. Funny thing I didn't get one North American hit, in fact the last hit on the 2nd page was back to this thread! Amazing really if you think of it.
