So after a long time I can finally offer the machined disconnect rings.
One great member of the RPF contacted me and is a CNC operator. He is curently making one set to check everything.
Please let me know if anybody is interested, then we will sort out the price.

For clarity I'm the person who is going to machine the parts for those who are interested, so you can follow along with the process. I'm planing to machine 1 or 2 sets depending on how many part I scrap in the process. After I have confirm it works as required I shall proceed to make sets for those who would like them.
They are going to be quite expensive, it's a serious piece of machining. I hope to have a price worked out soon.

Thank you Alex for clarifying this.

Alex and me also found some minor errors in the original models I made. These will not affect the members who wanted the STL files for 3D print.
I did correct some angles for easier machining. If anyone who already have my files and want the updated ones, please let me know.

I found this picture and that lead me to thinking, that the plastic seal (as I call it) must have a flange, which is the inner gas bag glued to

So I edited the file like this
