I have some ideas and requests to build things to hold tea lights. I have found many places that have wall or table candle holders that have a 1/2" tall cup that a tea light candle goes in and has room to be easily removed when it is completely used up. What I am looking for is the metal cup that it fits in. I have done some research and have asked some companies that make similar products, but I can't seem to find the part.

Any ideas on where to purchase this small metal piece?

Got any pics or a link of the piece you're talking about. Tea lights come in little metal cups, that's not what your talking about is it? If this is something you're welding/soldering why can't you make a cup out of tubing or sheet metal? Pru

The metal cup that is showing in the Turkey "body" is similar to what I am looking for. My resources of metal and my current skill level, is that I was wanting to purchase the metal cups to weld to my other ideas. I have seen other people use them on things at flea markets and other things, and figured they were easy to come by, but I can't seem to find them anywhere and I don't have contact information for the things I had seen before.

You might find some nice solutions if you google "steel tubing end caps". Most of them are spherical, but you should be able to find flat, non threaded caps.

I have tried that also and not found the product. I will keep working on it though. Thanks for the help!!!!
