    I have the same problem and have sadly had the same result (silence) following several attempts to contact Ben through multiple channels.

    Well, I sent a quote request to SKGrimes. Maybe we'll get a group discount if we order 3 sets of flanges

    I would be interested in hearing about that quote.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    I am (relatively) local to SKG and will be retired in a couple of weeks, so I could bring my camera down there for Adam to figure out a robust fix.

    I would be interested too, depending on the price. My travelwide has not broken (yet), but I want to make provisions for the long haul. I love this little guy.

    Tagging this thread. My TW has two broken screw holes as well, but on diagonal ends. It works fine with just the two other screws tightened.

    I need to take it apart again and try just superglueing the holes. I believe they just cracked and did not actually break off.

    I'll let everyone know once I hear back. Maybe we aren't the first to request replacement parts, and they already have a blueprint on file? Fingers crossed

    I may have a file for 3D printing this part - ISTR that someone posted it somewhere, possibly APUG. I'll check when I'm back at my home computer. Maybe SKG could use this to extract dimensional info.

    EDIT - I have .dxf drawings for the arc-shaped pieces as well as for a circular retaining ring but I can't vouch for their accuracy.

    The part would probably be more robust if made from Aluminum or Brass rather than plastic.

    I would be in for one. I'm very careful with my TW and have it cased such that no pressure can be applied to the lens but it happens.
