Anyone one wants parts from a 10' Cave DK. I have mirrors, back plate etc. Everything for the cost of shipping.

 

The rotating rings tho I will keep or sell for reasonable price.

 

Faced myself in the mirror an accepted there somethings in life I am not going to be able to do.

 

Regards, Vinay

I may have an option to buy a Cave 10" DK as a restoration project.  From reading this thread it seems the fiberglass OTA is 12 x 40".  What is the weight?  Are there opportunities for some weight reduction?

 

Thanks,

 

John

I'm not sure of the weight, except to say that they're remarkably HEAVY.
