Hi, Ken,

My younger brother runs a light engineering business in Dalbeattie, and he's kindly offered to make one for me. However, it's taking him forever, so I don't think that's an option. Mind you, being an precision engineer, I'm pretty sure he's going OTT on the job and turning out a masterpiece of toolmaking.

What I could do is to supply you the drawings/CAD files, so perhaps you could have one made up by a local engineering firm in your area.

BTW, apparently Tufnol is more easily worked if it's heated to 100C. At 4mm, it should cut quite readily with a paper guillotine.

I'll keep you posted.

Cheers,

Frank
