I need a round object with a diameter of 30mm to 32mm to use as a cutting template. If you happen to stumble across anything that fits the bill will you let me know? I think I'll head to the supermarket tomorrow with my calipers. Seriously.

Thanks,

Ed

Strange. Just as I sent off this post, I looked up and there it was, an empty 35mm film canister: 30mm in diameter.

Please let me know if you find other objects.

Why not a tool store and look at sockets.
Or why not call a wood worker and ask him to
turn you one on the lathe. Or the hardware
store to check the pipe and pipe fittings. If
you were to find the right pipe you could
sharpen the end and make it a hole punch.
You could even get a compass and make your
own pattern the exact size you need.
