PFGE agarose plugs

What do people use for agarose plug formers when they are embedding cells in 
agarose prior to lysis, restriction digests, etc for PFGE?  Do I have to 
go out and buy an expensive mould?  I got tech. support to make a rather 
nice mould, such that the plugs will fit in my gel wells, but the plugs are 
1 mm thin and rather brittle.  Should I perservere, or is there a nice trick 
with a syringe, or something?

If you email replies to me, I'll summarize and post.

  cheers, John
