Wray 3" achromatic 4 foot 1870 - Parts needed

Ive been lucky enough to acquire a 3 achromatic 4 foot long Wray telescope circa 1870 photos below. Its battered but mostly there apart from the mount. Im hoping to restore it and am looking for the missing parts - lens at eye end of the sighting scope (tube is near 28mm ID) , tripod and brass mountings, stabilizing bar, case, RAS eyepieces, Also, any RAS (Royal Astronomical society) draw tube parts would be gratefully appreciated as these apparently fit. The piece that has been very roughly soldered in the third photobeing one I especially need it screws into a 38mm ID tube. You can see what the pieces should look like at http://www.brayebrookobservatory.org...achromatic.pdf .

Let me know if you have any bits your willing to sell. Regards Rob James
