Focuser adapter help

Hey,
I recently acquired an 8" blue skywatcher reflector. It seems to have a 2.5", rack and pinion focuser on it.
I don't know if this was standard or not.
It has a 1.25" adapter with it but this doesn't help with my 2" eyepieces.
The male thread on the adapter is about 60mmm.
Does anyone know of an M60 to 2 inch adapter?
I'm trying avoid buying a new focuser.
Cheers for any help

It may be worth getting in touch with the member in West Australia who machines various adapters for members at reasonable prices (AMAZING quality workmanship).
Sorry, my memory is CRAP but it may be Joshua Bunn perhaps.

I'm sure another member can point you in the right direction but a search on Google showed nothing for 60mm to 2" I could find.

I have a Vixen imaging extension and I know it's a b@stard size, from memory around 60mm but I had to get a friend to machine up an adapter so I could use it for anything.


I found an email address for Joshua:

Thanks for the info.
Turns out the Baader 4 in 1 adapter has an M60 thread on it. I got one off a fellow IIS member and it works perfectly.
