Forget it. I have tried to put them back together and it's very much like trying to put new piston rings on an automobile engine rebuild; almost impossible to do w/o the right tools, and won't be really right when done (without the right tools).
Thanks Phil, I sent an email to thkphoto.com offices asking for a quote and they say that it usually costs $30 to put it back together, and then I have to add the shipping costs.
In the other hand, I found this contact: http://maxsaver.net/B-W-77mm-Kaesemann-MRC-Circular-Polarizer-Filter.aspx , a B+W CPL Kaesemann for less than $130. They are Honk-Kong based and they seem pretty legit. Has anyone here dealt with them in the past?
Yes, maxsaver is legit. I bought all of my B+W Kaesemann polarizers from them and have never had any problems. Depending on where you are, if you can tolerate the shipping time the savings are worth the wait.
