@Bodhi - The member who used to sell them (Uncle Al) disappeared from the Forum and is non responsive.  Something must have happened to him as multiple attempts have been made to contact him via PM with no response.  Sad, as the inserts he made were really good quality and have held up (3 years now). He made them using a laser cutter. This is my 26"er with Uncle Al inserts put on in 2016.

I guess someone with a 3D printer should be able to replicate these as well. Unfortunately I don't have one.

If you start making batches of them you might as well start a website or something cause I think you will get a lot if requests lol

They have a 3d printer at the library, so if someone makes the CAD drawing or whatever you use for the 3d printers it would be cool to have.
