Brass, not so fast!

I'm making some candle holders and I'm looking for a brass cup to go inside the 7/8 hole in the top. I thought no problem right? Wrong!! Can't find them at hobby stores, candle making sites or anywhere else. I have some brass I can machine, but it's cost prohibitive. I tried a half dozens different google with different names for what I'm looking for. I saw one in "Wood turning design mag", but it didn't say where he got them. It's just a small cup that holes the candle and protects the wood HELP!!!

Thanks Guys

Hexhead My grand father used to buy the little brass inset finger pulls from the local hardware store and using the bench grinder, cut the bottoms off. Same kind of pull you would find on a sliding closet door. Small round, and about 3/4 or 7/8 across. They are called Flush mount Pulls or recessed cup pulls.

Some (most?) of you people have great imagination. I even have some of those brass door pulls in my garage and would have never have thought of that use.

These are brass cups that can sit on top of the wood or can be inserted into a hole in the wood.

Packard Woodworks: The Woodturners Source pn# 152101 These are insert rings that that have a brass lip. They go in a hole and provide a decorative rim.

Thanks John. Out of 2ft of shelf space of suppliers catalogs I could not fine what he was looking for. The Packard one was exactly what my grandfather made out of the door pulls.

I thought that Lee Valley Tools sold them, but I could be wrong.

I love this forum.

if you google candle inserts , the first result is bear wood products, they have them for 13 cents each. 29/32"
29/32" Candle Insert(Brass Plated)
also had a bunch of other little things like that. neat site.

other sites i saw have 1/2" and 7/8" sizes....
which makes me wonder What the most typical/popular size is for candles???

(btw, cool script! i just pasted a URL and the page title popped in by itself,nice :) )

lastly..it seems bear has a $25 minimum ,so 'bear' that in mind !
