I have similar rings on my DS-10.

Notice it was raining when I brought the DS-10 home, yes a very good mirror.

I think I still have a set of those rotating rings for a 16" in one of my storage lockers.

This may not be the right place to post, but... I just acquired a DS-16 that I am going to restore. I am also going to build my own rotating rings. I have a few questions for the experts though, so If I could directed to the proper place in this forum, I"d be appreciative.
