Old Ranger Rebuild Project

Does any company make a focuser that will fit on a Ranger?
I have an old one that if I could remove the focuser and replace it with quality after-market one I think it would be a better scope. I just never could get use to the original helix one.

I think a couple of years ago there was a thread about taking a Ranger apart for some other reason, cleaning I think. Are those slotless screwheads just screws with their slots covered ?

Just a thought. Thanks for any input.

Well, one reason is that the Ranger resale value is low compared to what is was new.
I think I would be more happy if it did have a "regular " focuser on it even a used one from Astromart.
Thanks for your thoughts.
