A good friend of mine is making me a fly tying bench, and he needs to know dimensions of various tools that I have. The only one that has me stumped (as I don't own it yet) is the 2 3/4" hair stacker from DR Slick. The base of the small stacker is 7/8", the medium is 1". Can anyone tell me the base diameter of the large stacker? Much thanks for any info. 

Andy

I wondered if they didn't go up incrementally in 1/8"s. Thank you very much!

What material is it made of?
He may just need a rare earth magnet inset right underneath the stacker.
Good for all sizes as long as the stacker is magnetic.

Mine are brass, so that's not going to work.

1 3/8 diameter should accommodate a wide range of stackers

The exact size of a Dr. Slick large brass stacker is 1.180" measured on my dial caliper.
