Solution to using traveler under load??

I checked with "Guido" at and they have nothing, short of drilling and threading the old S/S 1-1/4" rail and mounting a new system. $400.ea {the split rig needs 2} plus the rail,line,etc. What would you think about fabricating {have a son pretty good with a torch} a flat traveler car from S/S flat stock with timkin bearings? My question would have to be how to mount the "tiny" timkins to carry the car under the load of a 300 sq ft. or so main and mizzen. Any further ideas?

Thanks for your first idea. Give it some thought for me.....
