    It's a swanstrom set Carole - I got mine here:

    Swanstrom Disc Cutters - $250.00 : fundametals.net, essential tools for creating wire & metal jewelry

    along with the centre plugs and (ahem) one or two other things.....

    They're made for Rio Grande, but the shipping would have been much higher bought direct.

    I have to say, it's a very beautiful bit of kit

    Ooh, that's the one on my wish list (hoping to get it via the OH's parents who live in Florida) - glad you give it the thumbs up!

    Wow! That looks like a fab set. I'd love one of those. I've already good 2 sets though, so I mustn't be greedy. On the other hand ..........

    I've been away watching a movie and have only just got to see these wonderful toggles. George, they are absolutely beautiful! (and I'm still reeling from the thought of the size 12 polyester )

    Well girls...I expect a full review of the product by lunchtime on Boxing Day!!!

    So how does it work then??? As I said...I have just been looking with longing - I hadn't really got to the how it works stage yet!!

    Thanks for all the info George! I'm still so much of a beginner that I view things the other way round...the more functions I can get out of a tool the better it is!! I will be 90 before I can think of spending that sort of money on a tool!! But I do want to have a play...and for that 50 is still a lot of money!!
