Source for .965 filters? Do it myself?

I wonder if current 1-1/4" filters, when removed from their cells, could be scribed with a glass cutter, the outside broken off and thus reduced in size to fit the smaller holders. Old .965 filter cells sourced from moon and sun filters should be plentiful.

Plenty of old sun and moon filters around. SurplusShed has moon filters, new. That's a good idea.

There is a .96 Celestron Red filter up on ebay now..... or for some short period of time until one of us .965 collectors grab it. I would have already purchased it except I spent my monthly allowance....
That's what made me think of it. There's gotta be a source out there someplace.

Sherry Hand at HandsOnOptics says she gets them from time to time, so I guess I'll just keep my eyes on her Used Stuff list. She's sending an 80A, which was at the top of my Wish List. A very generous CN member is sending me a couple of "extras" he found in his gear. After a few months I should have a pretty good set put together, but I sure would like to find an importer.
and...a Celestron set went up on Amart today. CharlieB tipped me to it, and it's on the way.
