I just finished making one. Haven't tried it out yet, but it should work well. I put 2 6-32 socket cap screws in to an aluminum slug (2.50" dia, 15/16" hole drilled in the middle) separated by 1.535". Two 1/4-20 holes on the OD to get some grip. so unless I screwed up some measurements, it should fit perfectly.

if anyone in my neighborhood wants to borrow it, just give me a shout. I'll even lend to anyone by mail, provided you pay shipping ($3 each way, I think).

Rust is a terrible machine... eventually I used a punch and a big hammer and turned it that way... it was a PITA
