Focusing screen Pentax 67 and Pentax 67II

I just got a split field sceen off ebay for my Pentax 67II. It's very nice - not a Beattie, I suspect, but it's still very nice, perhaps an original Pentax screen. I had to mount it in the black screen-frame, that came with the camera. But I would prefere to have it mounted in it's own frame. A screen in a frame can be exchanged very easily, without using any tools - just clip it in.
My question is: Where can I buy such frames? Also even frames with a screen already mounted?

I don't think the frame was a separate item. The screen and frame came together on the OEM screens. Your best bet finding someone who used a 67II screen in their 67/6x7 and now have a spare frame because you have to omit that on those cameras. The BJ-61 would be an OEM 67II screen with grid and horizontal split focus and the BB-61 just plain horizontal split focus.

Note the 67II also had some brighter screens for telephoto but issues the following warning:
" must be taken as the brightness of the screen may affect the exposure."

Beattie screens also influence exposures. Early experience (1995) with one of these on my EOS1N was disastrous. The screen was tossed out decades ago.
