Hi
I used some of the things that hold the chain for a plug in the sink to the side of the sink not sure what they are called you can buy brass ones, they do a good job but put some lock tight on the thread so it doesn't come loose. White rose apparel sell cast vervelles if you wanted to go down that route, but when you hammer the shank over on the inside you need to put something in the hold of the vervelle or they flatten out. here's the website

Hi I've hunted high and low for suitable chain stays but they are not easy to find on their own. I looked at white rose apparel but couldn't see the vervelles amongst the other cast items.

So no luck so far. I found some on an American site but don't really want to pay as much again in shipping and import duty!

If you ring White rose they do sell them but looks like they don't advertise it on their website.

But do some research and make your supplier supplies vervelles. Not clunky great things sticking an inch out your helmet. They are easy to get right, but from what I've seen, not many people bother. its a client driven market so get driving!

Oh and steel ones are more sensible if a) you intend to fight in it with headshots allowed and b) you want to gild them.

I got Mark Vickers to do me some. With his armour knowledge and light engineering skills it was an easy job.

I've tried those Revival ones and to be honest a few were not long enough to be useful and on some the holes were well off centre. I couldn't recommend them And they are brass...

I have managed to find a source for steel vervelles.

Although I'm uncertain of the quality of some of their, armour steel mastery in the ukraine have said they would make some for me with long " stems" so I can cut them to the correct length before fitting and peaning them in place in my bascinet

20€ for 8 including shipping seemed a fair price

I shall let you know what the quality is like once they arrive
