    Theres a dude on ebay called the "catman". Got mine off him. 80 quid each. Not bad quality, and the fits good.

    I had one that was knocked thru, but gave the flanges to mark.

    Problem is you really want a dead one, as a working ones going to be worth money, but at the same time anyone with a dead cat would just chuck it in the bucket.

    true, it's not really a problem, i can machine some flanges at work on the water jet, but if i had a knacked cat i was just planning on welding a piece of gash re-bar between the two flanges and cuting the 'cat' section out and replacing it with a piece of pipe then cut the re-bar off after, it would just save time pissing about mocking the flanges up by eye as it were.......the hunt continues
