T-thread spacers

I need a couple of 1mm T-thread spacers...anyone know where to source these in Australia?

Just to clarify, I'm looking for rings to thread on the end of the reducer T-thread to pad it out a bit so the thread doesn't hit the OAG prism

Dunk,
Haven't seen them in Oz...
They are usually called T thread locking rings, I got mine from Telescope Service while working in Europe.

Hey Dunk, I have Baader T spacers (I have cut them so now they look like a spring washer so they are easier to get into place)
PM me your address and I'll post a couple to you.
Cheers
Matt

P.S. They come in varying thicknesses so let me know the total thickness you need.

If you are having to order internationally, Edmund Optics have these spiffy looking brass rings:

It looks like, maybe, they would ship out of Singapore.
