The one on my 9" SB was shop made from looking at Rudy K's review of same in M/J '96 issue of HSM and another similar unit in M W/S O/N '00 pg #22. The clamp section is made from doubling up 1 X 3/8" bar sections grafted on to a 1/2" square length of bar stock. The clamp section essentially veers off to the left at 45 deg. at the same time swoops downward approximately 15 deg. Overall it has been a sucessful project and works well. It tends to be a bit difficult when trying to manuever into a tight spot though. There used to be other useful info on the net under "Gene's metal page" but that seems to have disappeared.

Bob, really don't have that kind of facility .........sort of still back in the "Instamatic" era here. If it wasn't for the cross border hassle, I could mail it to you for a look see. Any other options out there??
