    Here is one from Home Depot. The low range of it is 3/32", which is about 2.38mm. I don't know what it would look like with 2mm Dynaglide around it. Think this would be too big?

    Here is one for smaller diameters. 1/16", 1.58mm.

    there's not much of a need for the smaller size thimbles, out here. small dia. rope can easyly bend around a small rad. without undue stresses.

    Look at reddenmarine.com for the Seadog brand HD stainless steel rope thimbles.

    You could make your own with some copper pipe and a ball bearing.

    Good luck,

    Very cool, Red. I like your railroad track anvil.

    Very suspiciously, yet entirely coincidental I assure you, a train derailed about 40 miles away from my house and basically in my home town this morning. (No injuries that I'm aware of at the moment)
