Matt,
I don't have that Info for you, sorry. It seems as though it would be pretty straightforward to do the measurements yourself. You could try making a wood mockup (2x4,1x4???) to get the general shape, then use the old steel rule and caliper to fill in the details. Look at the pictures in the catalogs and get general configurations. You are lucky to have access to the machine shop to do these kind of fun projects. The only thing I would be concerned about is how much time it would take you to complete the project, If you are looking at 8 hrs worth of work, I personally would spend the $100+ and buy one out of a catalog with all the engineering done for you.

Just my opinion.....Have fun
