Default Hempy-Cooper babbitting tool

Has anyone used Hempy-Cooper babbitting tools with any success? Has anyone ever attempted remaking the Hempy- Cooper design of their babbitting tool?

I know the guys on the Model-T forums use them some. Also, Smitty from this site I believe has one.

I am pretty sure the Hempy made pouring bars into the V8 era for the Ford engines. So without knowing which one it is or size of bar? Without some modification to the bar you don't have a lot of wiggle room for undersized cranks when pouring (at least the Model T version). But then Wilson pouring frames and bar are in the same boat.
