I've got the older version of the Bartech with slightly different proportions on the focus knob so that it can't take the drop-on rings that are currently for sale. Recently on a rental it was returned without my spare slotted marking rings. I can go back to the old tape-style, but was hoping someone out there has a handy home-built solution for slip-on rings that are solid and reliable. I can see many more years of use in my Bartech, and would love to find a solution to this. Any thoughts out there?

I've heard PVC doesn't work and I can't remember exactly why.  Someone told me they tried PVC and had to ultimately use delrin, maybe because of wear or durability.
