Bonnie, The Caning Shop makes the "Adjustable Caning Comb." The set of plastic caning combs are available from a company in France. The trouble is they're in millimeter spacing and I could never get them to fit whatever I was caning. That's why I developed the adjustable comb to fit any spacing between 3/8" and 3/4." I've never seen the "square caning tool." An interesting idea. I still like the ice pick and tack hammer approach for squaring up the grid. Also, putting the first diagonal as the third step really helps to hold the grid in place.
