So write or call Elderly and ask if they can get the size you want in Crowe spacing.

I'm sure any of the bridge makers who contribute to this forum could make one for you.

Google search results suggest that the original maker of "Moon" bridges was Randy Stockwell. But no search for "Randy Stockwell Moon bridge" points to an online presence for any maker. A 75-year-old Randy Stockwell is a member here. Maybe the same person. But his profile is empty.

No search I conduct points to the current maker of Moon bridges with the crescent moon logo.

Nice that a member has come up with a Crowe-spaced Moon in his stash.

Very generous, Don.

There are moon bridges and arched bridges
One builder here on the hangout in archives used an 11" rim as the 5.5" radius form for his moon style bridges., No one had seen that before. I remember, but hasn't been discussed for a while.

The moon bridge I have is a stocwell bridge with the crescent moon logos
I will be sending it to him when I receive the envelope he is sending

The only difference is i thought it was a 5/8 but when I located it this morning to get ready to send it is actually a 11/16 I contacted him and informed him
