There is a bloke just up the road from me who is supposed to be an expert on them, Russell Zabel is his name. 

I don’t thing he has any for sale at present but that is about the price he sells them for.

Were is his website.  He has some excellent books

http://zabel.com.au/

Been interested in these little things for a while but never got around to doing anything about it.

Sugarbag actually.  Logfire used it in his winning dish a few Challenges back.
