There are lots of things on The Toolpost's shelves that don't make it onto the web site. Try phoning or emailing.

Cheers Robbo3 and NazNomad.

I've been thinking about making my own but I reckon it will get pretty time consuming and expensive, I just need a big dollop of inspiration !

Doode.
This may be a little left field but I have been looking myself and short of paying a small fortune in postage from the states there seems to be no options. I have just bought a pack of 200 jumbo coloured lollysticks 150x20x2mm from ebay for about a tenner. I'm going to glue them up and turn... Something?
I will post results when I'm done, below is a link just in case you fancy having a go.
I'm assuming you are a woodturner.

You are aware that the Dye is only a few microns deep and once you start turning you will take it all off in the first cut

Well, there is a youtube video of a guy who turned a spinning top out of similar or the same and the colours were still there, if not I suppose I just bought 200 stirring sticks... sigh.
I will find out by Friday latest and will let you guys know. I've only been at the turning lark a few months, its a money pit isn't it, but nothing ventured and all that.
Cheers
Atticus.

Oh well stirring sticks it is, dammit!
I have a question. My chuck is occasionally coming of my insert. Is there a pin that I can use to hold the insert and chuck together? There is a hole on the chuck (supernova) that looks to be for that purpose but I can't find anything on Google, more than likely because I do not know the correct term for it.
Thanks.

Mine kept coming loose, all i did was remove the insert and clean any dirt from out of the threads, it was not tightning fully before, fixed it.... The hole on the side is for a grub screw used for reverse turning.
