Here is my spin on a Struble U-24, same dimensions. .640 insert diameter and 3.5 inches long. I machined the hardware from Stainless Steel and made the insert out of Lignum Vitae. There is no finish on the insert yet, that is my next step. I built a fixture to machine the reel foot relief in the fixed and sliding hood. Now that the fixture is built, this is a fairly easy process.
