Default Homemade Shifter

Has anyone attempted to make a heel shifter of their own? I have done a few searches here and not found anything that popped. Also Google and nada. So I am use to a heel shifter on my RSV and have found it odd getting use to not having one. The other day I had this idea for a heel shifter that I think would be unique and cool. I'm thinking about making one out of a combination wrench. Maybe like 1 1/4 or something, I aint worked out the whole thing yet. But do have an idea I'm sketching up.

I was thinking of asking @MaddogUSMC to send me a piece of his femur. I'd polish it up, drill it to fit the shaft and even if it didn't work well it would be a cool conversation piece But I did't know how that would go over with him at the time....then he started healing and having all this rehab, which I figured he need the greater part of his femur for....so I just dropped the idea.

I had a friend make a heal toe shifter for my Gunner. It worked out real good. Here's a link to the thread where I posted some photos. Hopefully the link works.

This is sort of the rough idea. Then maybe add a allen bolt or something off wrench for heel to hit.
