so i'm sitting here nothing to do, had a mess of 4" & 6" fawcet rods, lets make some club-date rods 7-1/2" total length,

i cut the 6" rod at the handle, cut the 4" rod at 1" under the handle, together gives me 7" rod.

i took a hinge i had and knocked the pin out of it, then drilled the holes out so the rods would slide in tight, i then ground the cut ends of rods so when jammed together would give me a groove to braze together. the hinge holds in proper alinement, and allows you to turn as your brazing, you then need to file the braze down to remove from hinge jig, the claw will now cover the bronze,

only you and i will know the difference! works fine when you don't have proper rods.
