These are available at atleast one hardware store in my town (Bloomington, 
Indiana, USA).  They are also available from a mail-order company called 
McFeely's.  Very useful, though they are primarily used in woodworking 
applications.  They also have a small following in the US furniture and mobile 
home trades.
