    The size of the prism cutout in the box (shown on 
    your website) would presumably give you the 
    dimensions you need for the prism. I assume the 
    prism itself would fit in the cut-out and the 
    bracket to attach it to the sextant would be on top.
    
    I think �747 is a bit over the top. This looks 
    more like the market price for such prisms.

    So, for something closer to �100, you should be 
    able to make yourself a replacement.
