Yep, thats kinda what I got. Not sure if this is "old style" but it's this one here:

It's tough to find stuff in UK stores, btw - their English is quite a bit different, especially in terminology. What we call "turnbuckle" is a "rigging screw" to them, and a "turnbuckle" is something fairly different in UK. Anyway, now I need to get riggers over here one more time and I'd be all set.
