That my friend is a good question.

I expect my "spare" diverter assembly to arrive in the mail any day now, hook up to the chop saw and hack off the end, then go from there.
The really neat thing about magnesium, if you've ever played with it, is that once she gets to burning it's white hot bright to blind you. Amazing stuff.
Do we know for sure that these are made of magnesium, of maybe some alloy with aluminum? Might be helpful to the welder to ID just exactly what the makeup is,
