    I think they were only done in narrow & wide spool width's. I have a couple of the narrow width versions with some spare spools if you're interested, drop me a p.m. with an email so I can send you a pic or 2,

    hello
    more revelations , the 3 5/8" I bought on Ebay arrived as a 3 1/2" not
    that I am concerned , but lends evidence to only the one diameter being made , possibly in varying widths .
    regards
    Tony
