Ralf, before you go to great trouble, these are already in the process of being reproduced. I had an NOS one, and it has been scanned, digitized, and 3D printed in plastic (which can be vacuum plated). We are now looking into 3D printing them in stainless. I haven't posted anything about the project here because they are not ready at this time, but are underway. I have no idea of the price, but the quality and fitting should be awesome since they are based on a mint NOS one. I'm not trying to stop you from doing your own project, but wanted you to know about ours...

Here was the first test run, 3D printed in plastic.

It will be really interesting to see their pricing....the plastic one might be affordable but in stainless? Isn`t it still going to require a sanding and polishing process on top?
Plastic would`t feel right but this is just my opinion..

Better picture..I have 5 pieces ready to ship. One pair of these were made of 3mm stainless the rest of 2mm. 3mm too tough to work with.
