Spider nut new
      #5772296 - 04/02/13 08:06 AM

A friend has an Orion XT8 that is missing one of the four shoulder nuts that holds the spider to the tube.

He bought it used so Orion won't sell him another one...

Anybody know where to get one?

Any appropriately sized nut should work? I would go to Ace Hardware and get 4 new stainless steel nuts. Think of it as an upgrade.
