Don't bother sending me anything. In time I'll find something and if 
need be I'll just flame cut a disc from flat plate. I checked out one of 
our local farm supply places looking for a flat disk blade but now that 
it's winter all of those types of things are gone or put away. 
Impossible to find anything outside with all this white stuff on the 
ground. Looks like I have enough scrap for the frame.

It was to show a principle of slicing the fibres as the force of the blade was applied with as much rotation of the blade possible. How the dimensions are determined can be proven using a cardboard mock-up and leaves plenty of room for innovation relating to the features you mention.
