So I made my own, and will continue to do so as long as there's a need for them.

Oh yes, I still make adapters. MCB is treating my links as untrustworthy, but if you manually follow the links in my sig to my store, they can be found there, or on eBay.

Awesome, thanks! Do you have a variant for left, right, and center feed or does one adapter do all three?

Each adapter will fit any twistlock body. Right feed, left feed, centerfeed, powerfeed-left, powerfeed-right and Sydarm. If it takes a twist-lock barrel, my adapter fits it.

Doc, if it helps, I don't think that it is MCB treating your links as untrustworthy, but rather that your links are incorrectly... linked. When I hover over the link to your website in your signature, it links to: "https://www.docsmachine.com". Because your website isn't set up to do SSL security (encrypting data between the person going to it and the website sending data back - I just checked by manually typing your URL without the "https://" and my browser comes back confirming that the website isn't communicating via SSL), the link should point to: "h t t p ://www.docsmachine.com" (note the missing 's'). If you fix these links in your signature, they should be good to go without any hassle for someone to click on them and get to your webpages or websites.

Ideally, though, in today's day and age it would probably be a great idea to add an SSL certificate such that your website encrypts data back and forth (making the "https://" part work right) for a lot of good but largely irrelevant on MCB tech nerd reasons.

NOTE to the MCB powers that be: I think Doc's problem really has something to do with the forum software. I just tried editing this post three times to get the correct link to be written correctly and every time when I hit the 'post' button, the forum software throws in the 's' that shouldn't be there (that is why in my example I put the spaces between the letters "h t t p" so that it reads right (although in practice don't put those spaces in there, Doc, if/whenever MCB's software will let the URL fly as it should).

Cheers!
