Source for Lunt 100 mounting rings

Post by Gert » Sun Aug 21, 2016 7:00 am

Hi All,

Lunt ships the LS100 with mounting rings with rounded top.
I need rings with flat top for Losmandy D-type bar (top and bottom).
What is the correct ring diameter and which is a reasonably priced manufacturer?

Thanks,
Gert

Hi Gert, my LS100 came with the double flat rings, maybe give Lunt a call.

Hi Gus,

That's interesting.
So Lunt might have changed the rings that they ship with the LS100.
May I ask when you got yours? Mine is from Sept. 2014.

Cheers,
Gert

Hi Gert, I bought mine in August 2014, but the serial number shows 2012.

yes they changed it, i have the 'old' style as well, i can confirm this because i just bought replacement screws for the hinges that broke. i'm not sure if you can get a complete setup anymore or if its all just the new stuff, but faye at lunt would certainly know.

i'll also add that i bought a handle like on the 152 for the 100 and it makes my life much easier and less scary, however i don't know if the new rings will work with it easily.
