Help!
Tiny Turnbuckles ?

Hi y'all, does anyone know where I can find nice little brass turnbuckles?
Im building a scratch 72" Primary and need a hand full.
I remember Graupner had some great ones but can't seem to find them online.
Everything seems to be 1/4 scale big stuff.

Thanks in advance,Angus

Thank you ARUP . Proctor is what Ive been looking for,and closer to home.
Just getting back to this project after several years so I feel a bit out of the loop.

For our yachts we used to make them from brass game fishing swivels, a bike spoke and nipple, with some brass tube.
