Topic: Bassoon reed staples

I started reading the double reed archives from 1969 and had to ask, what ever became of bassoon reed staples? I saw something about the dimensions, but does anybody sell them or have the proper dimensions and diagrams ( and/or pictures) for the proper assembly? I have two friends with metal lathes that can help on this one if I can get measurements.

I was actually looking for an article from a journal that will not load from 2003, #26-4. Written by Julie Feves about cut reeds, I wanted to read that article too. I did get some diagrams and those are also quite cool, excellent for pp and highs. I made a few and my wife likes them for a really easy practice reed.
