    I had one in the seventys. I heard they are the best. Why dont they make them? You would think someone would. Seems like there is a demand for them. I want one.is the one made in Spain available? I heard the Italian isn't as good. Dimensions available? Hardest thing to make would be the bottom ring. I suppose if you stuck a spring inside to bend it. A few ak 47 recoil springs work.one piece would be better. Has anyone made one from aluminum or could you use copper tubing? Or a PVC frame with like #8 bond wire soldered together

    I found what I need to make one .some racing 1/2 aluminum tubing 16.99 for a 10' roll. Not too expensive. 51.00 for three should be enough.
