I ran across a website that sold those... Sold them piece by piece or as a kit. Looked interesting.

I'm not entirely certain... That space between the pipe and the flange was heavily gooped up with wax, mold and fungus. There's something solid down there, but I can't quite get it clean enough to tell what it is. It very well could be lead. Either way, I'd have to jackhammer out the concrete to remove it... That's not really something I want to do, if I don't have to.

Strange... The link you posted sent me to a bing.com page with dozens of images of assorted varieties of repair flanges.
The one from Grainger was just the first example of that specific style I'd run across, when I did a web search. I wasn't planning on ordering from Grainger... We've got a Menards, a Home Depot, a Lowe's, an Ace Hardware, and a Sears Hardware all within 5 miles of my house. I know the first three all have that piece in stock for a lot cheaper than Grainger.
So correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like if I drill out the holes in the concrete and set some anchors for bolts, I should be able to bolt down the new "repair" flange right over the old one. I need to make sure I caulk (or otherwise seal) between the two. If it's not tall enough for the wax seal, I can add in an extension spacer, so long as I caulk it up in between. Does that sound right?
Also... How clean does the old flange need to be? I'm presuming it would be best to get the rust and grime cleaned off and down to clean iron for the best seal?
