Here's one I drew up years ago, from someone else's measurements.
I never built this due to concerns with the durability of such rings. Maybe the reports of stress cracking all related to stainless steel. I don't know. At least for a time, stainless was a popular choice for this,but it's brittle and not a high-strength steel. A ductile steel, which can dissipate impact and stresses would be a better choice.
