Anyone have a u-change bypass kit they would sell? It appears to be no longer available

If not, would anyone be willing to share the measurements of the bypass tool. Looks simple enough to make but having the dimensions between trans would be helpful.

Check this thread out.

Edit: "I just got done making one of my by-pass tools this morning without taking a lock apart as reference. I used a scribe and a dial caliper to mark 11 lines on some wiper blade material from the edge. #1 @ 1.300 (providing a .290 throat cut). #2 @ 1.010, #3 @.930, #4 @.806, #5 @ .726, #6 @.602, #7 @.522, #8 @.398, #9 @ .318, #10 @ .194, and finally, #11 @ .114. Cuts were made leaving five bits with a height of .080 and with a bit separation of .124. The wiper blade material was filed down to a width of .046. The wiper blade was ground down between bits to .030 and then filed round to create a needle (necessary -if you want the tool to rotate ninety degrees). The tool works perfectly."

Dimensions are in the thread. I have not tried them, but being that they were written by the inventor of the bypass tool, you might give them a try.
Also there is a PDF file above that has a line drawing and directions how to use it.

Unfortunately that's a dead thread with all the important bits missing.
I believe you get your own measurements while working with a lock.
