Homebuilt flip up / folding flip up stem, need ideas / plans

I remember seeing lots of plans, in years past, on how to build a folding flip up stem / mast for a bent.
Now that I am thinking about one, nothing that I can find.

any help?

thanks

I just buy something. Glideflex stems are awesome. I suppose if you want to weld up your own, look at pics of others.
