    I have saw them on ebay in past. By colum do you mean the whole assembly the sticks bolt to? If you only need sticks, you can buy 4 feet of 1" or 1 1/8" whatever it is 4130 steel tubing at ACS for 15 bucks and any metel shop can bend them into shape. I am sure someone will send you a pattern of there stick, take 5 minutes to bend.. maybe buy a few 4 foot tubes to perfect it.

    Send me your address so I can ship you the 1 1/8" x .063" wall 4130 tubing and be sure and make a video because I want to see.

    And don’t forget to weld the nut inside to attach the knob.

    Any metal shop should have one of these https://youtu.be/-pOc_9YFPR4

    I have seen one in action, a very cool machine. I wish I had one. The bending would take 5 minutes and cutting and welding the bottom piece on another 20 minutes, 1/2 hour worth of work, hour maybe.

    I say bull****. Not a constant bend, would take more than 5 minutes to program the bender. I was privy to what it took for Bob to have these made. First you say you can build one in 5 minutes now you say a shop can. I will pay you $200 to make or have the stick made. Using your previous posts you should be able to make a killing. I have a friend who builds dragsters and small Sprint car chassis and have watched what goes into these bends. His is not computer controlled and there is a lot of scrap made to get the initial part made. Once done it is easily repeated with notes on the first part.
