    Sorry about that Model76 - I was looking into the options for a drop-in reflection plate when I saw these pans and didn't think about the depth for cones!

    There does appear to be a lack of selection, when it comes to tapered cake tins/pans suitable for cones, available to buy in the UK. Looks like shipping in from abroad may be the only option.

    I was thinking the same when I saw them.

    I was was also wondering if the the 'separators' (aluminium discs) also available on that site would make good ready-made reflection plates? However, the sizes mean you would have to get a 'separator' that is 1'' smaller than the pan size, so I'm not sure if that it is too small. Also, would 1.5'' deep pans be too shallow for aluminium reflection plate (i.e. would mylar be best)?

    That's what I was thinking... especially if using a Mylar disc floating in poly-fill foam.

    UK Suggestion

    So please, if anyone finds a good supplier in the EU, let it be heard!
    I wouldn't mind a PM, either.
    I haven't used these (so can't vouch for them), but the following site sells tapered pizza pans, which look like they could do the job and are available in most sizes needed. In addition, I think the 'Separators' (aluminium discs) available here could be used in reflection plate triggers.

    Hope it helps.

    Has anyone found suitable cake pans in the EU?
    Or will I have to get my friend in New York to send me some?

    This project looks so good that I have to try it...

    Thanks Phil for coming up with the original idea, and ChromeBoy, JmanWord, and Racer52 for evolving it!

    Ha! Well, from the way the young hotel staff manager was being complete passive/aggressive b*tch to the help I didn't feel so bad pilfering just a couple.

    I won't be jacking hubcaps anytime soon, but if I see a 22" spinner and it's late at night....

    You should build a trigger and see how it goes.

    It looks like they come in sizes that would accommodate 8", 10", and 12" shells, but I haven't found anything larger. However, maybe you can swipe one of these and try it on a 16" shell:

They DO have a hole in the center, but...it's CHROME! I went online to research them and they a more or less sold in bulk and you can get different sizes. Might be pricey.

    Anyway, just goes to show you the influence of this board on my thinking! Always thinking DIY!!!!

    Here's what they look like.

    Interesting, but there are no actual pics of your trigger build... do you have any?
