Hi Guys.
I am looking for Spare/Replacement Parts for my Skywatcher 450P Stargate - Primary Mirror Collimation Bolts in particular (Knurled Screws - Pushing & Pulling Knobs).
It seems the original Bolts are , how shall I put it.... not optimal, to say the least. 
In case anyone can recommend any alternative Main Mirror knobs - more comfortable for gripping and turning?
Also - does anyone know of any Bob's Knobs for the Secondary? 
So, in general - where can I get  the following:
1. Original / Alternative (more comfortable) Collimation Bolts in particular (Knurled Screws - Pushing & Pulling Knobs).
2. Bob's Knobs for the Secondary mirror.
3. General Spare Parts for the Stargate 450P.

 

Thanks all,

Eyal
