Ring Toppers, Mandrel Suppliers?

Looking for suppliers, I had the system McDuck made and its not compatible with anything else, and those I know of no longer sell the tools.

^That was from 2012 ;)

I do know for any future readers, green goldstone/aventurine can be prone to be incompatible. Test first. There are many threads on it here and other forums.
