How did you make it? 3D print? Thats a perfect solution!

I ordered 6" lengths of 3/4" Delrin rod off Ebay, and then drilled the end first with the smallest neck diameter, and then the larger ball diameter at the appropriate distance. Then it was hand-shaping with a cone grinding stone in a Dremmel Tool.

I've now used the white LS sleeves.
They're really simple things. Perhaps could be manufactured from a Delrin rod in the same way John made that tool.
