I want to build a few of these, preferably the ones with the molded or pregenerated correctors as I would be able to use a cast iron tool to help generate the surfaces.

Incomplete corrector/mirror sets are acceptable if you have the documentation that shows what optical design it was intended to make

Common sizes were 4 1/2", 5 1/2" - 6", 8" 10 3/4" and even the Hayward 11 1/4" monstrosity.

There are a few odd sized ones out there. I would be VERY interested in one of the 3 piece kits made in the late 70-early 80's by an East German company. The had a diamond generated corrector and primary, plus a blank for the secondary.

The mirror blank material has a odd color to it (light yellow or tan) and was their version of a low expansion material, and has a lot of small pieces of the firebrick making up the lehr.
