Smart Titanium Quads are around £25.

But you might well be able to get a £5 Sky one from eBay and get that to fit without too much difficulty - just remove any ridge lines from the collar: These beasts are nominally 40mm before one fits one of the array of adapters supplied to mate with Sky dishes. Obviously you won't need any adapters, just a Stanley Knife!

Of course, the feedhorn shape is not quite right, but in practice this should not be a problem for you

A bench grinder also gets the 'lumps' of quite nicely too, without any danger of slitting your fingers.
