    Where to get a small metal cone?

    Googled this loads but no joy - beyond trying to make one at work, anyone know where I could get a steel metal cone, approx (before I measure things) 3/8 inch diameter one end, 2/8 inch the other, and maybe 2mm thick?

    Can you not get a cookery funnel thing and chop the end off?

    Hmm, could do...I'm going to have a peruse of our design-tech dept at work today and see what they can suggest. Last option is to cut an arc out of a steel washer then get it bent round into a cone, that would work too...

    If it does work then I'm hoping to start a trend. If not the back to the way Ffoeg did things...cryptic eh

    Shocking dimensions nry!

    It's either 3/8" one end, 1/4" the other and 3/32" thick.

    or 9.5mm one end, 6mm the other and 2mm thick.

    If yout a Sheety, just make one.

    Dare i ask what's it for?
