    1/2 inch brass candle inserts

    I can find all the 7/8 inch brass inserts I want, but I want to put a 3/8 inch thick candle into it, like a birthday candle size, Im trying to put together some wood menorahs.
    if anyone can help me find a place that sells 1/2 inch width,(not depth) brass or stainless steel inserts, it would be extremely appreciated.

    dozens of sites sell brass grommets. I purchased from Jamestown Dist.
    the project will be put on hold right now anyway.
    The chairs are proving to be quite a challenge and I have alot of machine work to complete before the chairs are even half way home.Between work, doctors appts, obligations, I dont think Ill be finishing these chairs anytime in the near future.
