If anyone who has one could get an overall length measurement, I would greatly appreciate it. Looking to either cut and extend mine, or just fabricate one.

These are on my radar too.
Seems like something you would find at the nationals although I’ve never been.

I will say with the 5 axis technology, a full scan and a block of aluminum should produce one every 20 minutes .

Well, I'm thinking length of 3/4" roundstock, torch and a vise.

Here's a link to another thread. I made mine out of 3/4" round stock. Worked really great, just make sure you keep both ends clocked accurately so the angles don't change!

Awesome! About how much did you extend it? I have lots of 3/4 round and an extra stock slider, so this shouldn't be too difficult.

<EDIT> Herp derp, the length was posted on page 3 of that thread...
