M77, yes, I turned some steel rod to fit the ID of the way tubes. You should note that on Tony’s machines the ID of the front tube is different than the back tube. That is due, I think, to the broached teeth in the front one.
The connectors are only about 8” long and are secured with short set screws. A very tight slip fit is essential.

The standard lathe on my setup can reach 39” CTC. It would be a real pain to set up the stretch in my crowded shop now!
