I would look for jewelry stores that are closing. You may find one that way. Hard to find a used one but if your in no hurry, I can be done.

Lots of luck to you.

You can always go smaller and turn it into a cuff.

Just a thought.

That really turned out nice, Steve. I love it and I bet somebody else will too!

In your case quality is more important than quantity.  yes

You can get by cheaper than that, although that will work fine.

Look at vacuum pumps and aspirators on ebay.

Good luck.

I was under the impression that EBAY has a web site for Canada. Never been on it but you Canadians may find it a good place to check out.
