    Don't know if it the "rig" you are looking for.
    But, do check out Don Pencil's stuff. High quality tools at reasonable prices. I have them and like. The only problem is I don't use enough.
    Check his blems and seconds for real savings.

    Just to throw something else in, you can build one yourself. I have done three. One hand held, a captured rig (which my son Jeff uses) and a steel snake or elbow tool. The builds were fun and I learned alot about hollow forms along the way. The info for these rigs is on my web site.

    If you go to you tube and search Kobra Hollowing system you will find part 1 and 2. One of the inventors shows how it goes together and how it is used. I have the larger brother of the one demonstrated and couldn't be happier. Mine has a 1" boring bar and you can hang it 20" over the rest. Their laser is also one of the best configurations on the market.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
