I have a metre lenson heath dish and the lnb arm which comes from the back of the diish is rusted through and nearly breaking has anybody got a old dish that they don't use anymore, because i have been told they have taken over by TRIAX and they don't make them any more , or can anybody recommend a dish i can use with my H to H mount and motor.

Suspect that you may have to have one made, or have the existing one repaired. Make sure you keep the old one so that the length/geometry can be measured. Shouldn't cost too much. Check out your local engineering firms.

If you don't fancy that, why not try some HD fibreglass over-wrapping?

Removed an old Lenson Heath about a month ago which looked pretty rusty to me until I tried to break it!

It took some bending, so you may be lucky and get a few years yet.

I would wrap it in glass fibre material you can get at halfords if you're worried - like BGonaStick advised.
