Just to clarify, the regular steel KM trays come in two sizes that I've seen, small (~7-3/8" diameter) and large (~8" diameter). Hand tapped brass trays are the same size as the small regulars and the steel hand tapped brass trays came in both sizes. Chiller trays are ~9-3/8" in diameter while the banded ones are slightly smaller at ~9-1/8" because the outer lip is folded down to put the trim on.
But no one is seeing these hand tapped/fancy trays or base trays online *and* in stock for shipment to the US? Heck... I am sure even used, people would be interested.
