I have seen ads at some places, but the sizes were limited and then their was/is cost.  One could buy a Byrnes drawplate and a bag of bamboo barbeque skewers for less money and get the size they wanted.

Ditto to Mark's comment.  I have a Chinese plate that is OK, but limited and a Byrnes which is great and goes down to 0.016"   I have had no success at this smallest size with any wood except bamboo. Whatever species is used of the 1000 bamboo species that are  available, the skewers sure seem to be the right one. With upwards of 10,000 trennals used on a fully planked hull and decks, and at different diameters, making them is the best way to go for many of us.



PLEASE take 30 SECONDS and sign up for the epic Nelson/Trafalgar project if you would like to see it made into a TV series.   Click on http://trafalgar.tv   There is no cost other than the 30 seconds of your time.  THANK YOU
