Where can I source the lost bottom for a removable tart pan?

Looking to find replacement bottom for 9" fluted tart pans. I have three rings with no bottoms :(
Thanks in advance!

Do you know who made the pans?

Back when I was catering, I lost countless bottoms of tart and springform pans before I got the notion to make false bottoms for them. I have never found a source for "extra bottoms."

Another solution, if you're short on time, is to use tin foil to shorten a baking sheet. Amanda's solution here is square, but you could also make a circle.

I think you can probably still use the rings without the bottoms. Since you most likely be lining the pan with a dough, put the rings on top of parchment, in a baking sheet. Line the dough into the rings and blind bake or fill your tart and bake. The baked tart will release from parchment. You don't have to worry about leaking since you have a crust. I've seen chefs bake cakes in round rings, not cake pans (the cake batter is probably very foamy or thick. So I think you can most likely do without the bottoms.

Thanks, everyone, this is very helpful -- including all the ideas about hacking a bottom-less tart pan!!

I have also used ereplacementparts.com for blender and juicer parts.

I also have four tart rings with no bottoms (got them for free from the restaurant I was working in). I used to make bottoms each time out of tin foil, but have since just started using them without a bottom by pushing them off onto a sheet pan and it works fine, though best for tarts where you prebake the shell at least somewhat.
