Havn't got one but you would still need the original focuser for coarse focus, using the Crayford for fine focus .
It won't cure mirror flop so I don't know how much it would be worth.
The standard focuser can be improved by fitting a disc of about 75mm diameter 15 mm thick over the standard knob. This wll give the effect of a fine focuser because moving the larger diameter "wheel" will give a finer control.
You can buy such things but I've only seen them on US websites.
