New old mount for my D&G 5" F12

Well, had a version of this mount for a couple of scopes in the past. Made a nice adapter plate for the Parallax rings.
Tapped base pillow block 1" shafts using sheaves with clamping screws. brass piece is a slip ring for declination.
All I need to do is make the latitude adjuster and find another RA drive. Be nice to find a small Beyers gear like I had. Most of the stuff he's got on the bay is larger
