If no one chimes in, contact https://innovatorswest.com/

They may be out of them, but was told if they get enough requests they will make another run.

They have the rights to the Landoll ring, and weight ring. There are prop extensions also that add weight but not sure if your cowl is fit yet.

I talked to them a few months ago.
They are out of stock and will only build more if they have an order for 10.
I ended up buying one from another VAFer.

Here's the thread.

IF you're not locked into using the ring gear, and IF you have an extension (>2") on your prop, you can very likely use what is called a steel or aluminum "shaft collar" on the extension to add mass at the front end.
These are available in inch or metric diameters in a wide variety of lengths and thicknesses from a number of suppliers. Prices, depending on material and finish, are $200-ish for inch sizes and about 30% more for metric sizes.
I currently have a Ruland 135mm metric collar on the hub of my too-light MT prop that adds 7.2# to help with CG concerns.
FWIW,
Andy

Default EXTRA WEIGHT!

Why not just have the prop extension made from steel? You can also have the prop crush plate made from steel. I guess I don't understand the issue. Any machine shop with a cnc lathe can turn these parts up in a few minutes. If these are needed let me know and I'll see what it will cost to turn a few up.

I should add that it is more or less imperative that if you use any rotating mass, be it on the ring gear or a shaft collar, you do a dynamic propeller balance on the system.
