WTB Spacer Ring for 8AH, 8BA

I'm looking for a spacer ring for a 8AH, 8BA or any 8.25"'x9.25"' ligne movement. It only needs to be thick enough to fit a case the next size up. Attached is an example.

Thanks

i hate and i mean HATE H.A.T.E the 8ae /8ac spacer..it was such a  bad design,so close to the balance wheel so easy to break a staff. which btw is no longer a problem to change a staff to get a watch running again.but finding 8ae/ac staffs are a pain..anyway its just a problem waiting to happen and know others who broke staffs putting them on and i did as well once..and once is one to many...does anyone else think this..

Yep, balance wheel into the ring is 100% of the cause of failure on mine.

to fix the problem on the spacer i cut the spacer on the top part above the stem so the spacer goes on easier...

Mark,

Picked up the movement ring this afternoon, installed it this evening. Perfect.

Thanks again,

Darren
