I had originally planned on building the mount from aluminum but after a trip to the local
metal salvage yard I decided on stainless steel. ( Aluminum would work fine )
The extra length of the new mount is to allow for the thickness of the ball bearing used
on the handle end and plus another 3/4" for extra travel.
I first cut the 3" OD stainless to length on my 4x6 bandsaw Before & after
This took awhile !
I started work on the handle end of the mount I bored the ID to accept the ball bearing
Finished turning the handle end. Turned it around and turned the mounting flange.
Using the Mini Mill and a 1/2" end mill I slowly removed
the excess metal.
I also added an extra attaching bolt to the bottom of the new mount.
