This 1/2" star plate is a fast and simple way to produce large numbers of uniformly sized cylindrical stars quickly. Each set consists of a bottom, female plate (9/16" thick) and a top, male plate.
These star plates are made for us in China of sturdy plastic with brass pins. They are about 8"x2"x1-3/4" and have 12 to 17 holes. These are the same plates used in hundreds of fireworks factories in Hunan province to manufacture commercial fireworks exported all over the world. They are inexpensive, and very serviceable.
