    The South Australians also have the option of the $15 Cheap as Chips ones. These are sometimes (but not always) wider at the base than the usual Bunnings ones making them more tree-shaped. On the wide ones I had to stop following the frame's spiral part way up because the spiral gets too vertical without enough wraps near the top.

    Thanks smartalec for telling me about these!

    Yes

    Left: Bunnings spiral frame with nodes. They had two sizes and this is the taller one. Both sizes had about the same taper.

    Middle: Wide Cheap as Chips frame with nodes.

    Right: Wide Cheap as Chips frame with nothing on it.

    I did see some in an Aldi catalogue, not sure if any good or how big they were. Some Aldi stores may still have some.

    I checked out the aldi ones today and got pics.. Bit flimsy and cheap feeling in my opinion, but for $4.99 they are well priced..
