Collectors are especially partial to trammels too

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
In the box between the planes are drafting trammels. They lack the beam. I thought I could use 1/8 drill rod but it appears the beam is rectangular with rounded corners. Looks like I need something about 1/8 by 1/4 with rounded corners. Any idea where to get a beam.

while your sources do not know what trammels are they sure knew about them at this show. Nothing in the PIC was less than 25$ even after haggling. The brass ones I would have preferred were $50. Some large brass ones were over $100. Trammels are collectable and anything collectable at this show is amply priced. Uncollectable user stuff can be inexpensive, like the cable puller and the Stake-on tool. .
