I've placed a new design at:

The .stl file is in inches, so remember to scale it if you are planning to 3D 
print it!

For those just following along, the .jpg will be the most useful.

The SketchUp file is also provided, but unless you're a SketchUp 
user like me, that's actually of little use.  (Do not attempt to cut 
into the spherical sections unless you've done that sort of thing 
in SketchUp before -- it's very hard to get it right.)

I don't know if the design will work -- will the slit will provide enough 
flexibility, will the post crack, etc.
