King Pin knee joints

Hello all,
I got a call from a patient that has a KAFO with the old King Pin knee joints, a Fillauer product that’s been long discontinued.  He says the joint heads need to be replaced.  Fillauer doesn’t have any.  I’m wondering if anyone has a pair, new or used that I could replace his with.  He is a polio survivor and likes his current braces and would prefer to keep them if possible.  He says the uprights are 3/4″ stainless, so I would need that size channel. 

I know this is a shot in the dark, but I told him I’d try.  I haven’t seen him before, he just called and lives 3 hours away.  Thank you.
