Puch 2 shoe brace

Anyone here ever make their own brace for the stockish 2 shoe clutch. I would rather make one then buy one so does someone have the basic dimensions for this? Just something to start with.

I made a few when I started off bracing 2 shoes. I just went to the hardware store and bought a sheet of metal. Then use a hole saw to cut the center hole. Then trace using a roll of tape and rules and bottles to get the shape you want then cut it out with an angle grinder with a cut off wheel. Drill and tap your posts. Might have to grind them down. Then done.

Yea just make sure the metal is the same thickness or less then an actual "store bought brace". If you have a mill this is a really simple job. The only another issue is the screws because the metal is thin ( it's difficult to find the correct screws that will sit flush) I remember using countersink heads but the heads did not sit flush so I actually had to drill a counter sink hole in the plate & a lil on the clutch post and then when I had it all together I filled the screw heads a lil.
