Retired Oar Stands

I'm in search of a set of the old NRS oar stands; the type with a low-pro, tubing for a riser and a cast end, Ideally not welded together. I'm hoping to play around with different, heights, angles, bends to come up with the "right" setup for my new boat.

I was just about to order a pair of the new NRS stands and decided to look a bit more and found that I have too many unknowns with my new setup and that I just don't know if I really want 10", 8" or less, maybe more? I stumbled on some old posts with guys making/adapting AAA, Clavey and/or old NRS stands and really like the idea of a modular stand. If I find a set up I like but have probelms with rotation I can find the nearst substitute or get something fabed.

I may be interested in other stands but I have all NRS stuff, so I'd like them to be 1 1/4" IPS at the point of attachment.

Thanks in advance!

Ill make them as tall as you want and then you can cut them to fit.

I'd rather not do the make em' long and cut em' down technique because I won't know the're too short until I get them on the water. Once I find where they're too short then I'll put a new piece of tubing in-between at the last known good height and be good to go. If I can't replace the tubing on my own the idea won't fly. Your towers look nice and I could probably cut that access hole and move the bushing to a new tube but I would like to start with the totally modular set up and go from there. Thanks!
