    I made one out a piece of coat hanger wire. Polish it before bending.

    I think theres a commercial Brass one out there, but I don't know off hand where to get one.

    Someone posted here once that they went into their Mom's kitchen and found the perfect tri-ring on the end of one of her pot handles.

    The picture hanging area of Michaels should have them.

    I agree with michaels.

    Look for puicture hangers. You will also find the "D" rings there :)

    I propose that you make a custom replica.

    Actually, MR saber is very expensive.

    If you live anywhere near a Lee Valley store they have a wire bending jig which could end your need for square, d-, and tri-rings pretty quickly. Costs about $7.00 or so, just go to their website (www.leevalley.com) and search for "wire bender". Cheap, fast, and your own near limitless supply.

    I know you already found some, but if anyone needs to know they have an assortment of them on hose sprayer/nozzles/squirters. Not sure if they are the right size but they have nozzles just about everywhere, and i thought that might be a little easier than ordering them.

    I still need one actually. Not sure what size is correct. I can't seem to find just one. I tried Michaels with no luck. All the online places just seem to sell them in bulk.

    The original is rusted to hell so it can't be aluminium or stainless, right?

    Right. It was probably just nickle plated or just a peice of steel wire bent to fit. I made mine the same way but out of aluminum. Good contrast to the dark color of the solid steel saber I made though...

    Did you machine that? Are you going to making these sabers as well as your v2, Russ, or is this just a one time project or something that needed your finishing touch?
