Help - looking for Martin bow draw stop

My nephew is 16, and has a new (to him anyway) Martin compound bow. Its in the shop, but they need a "draw stop" to finish tuning it. Nobody has one, and Martin won't return calls or emails from my nephew or the dealer. Lousy customer service, but that's another story.
Anybody have a draw stop, or is there an easy work-around? I have a little machine shop, and can make about anything if I know what it looks like.

Its getting too close to the season to be fooling around looking for part. Thanks for any help!

Re: Help - looking for Martin bow draw stop

Martin was bought up after the original owner died (within the past 9 months). I called them a few months ago and had no problem getting the information I needed. They are in the state of Washington, so you have to allow 3 hours time change. I'd keep calling until I talked to a human!

Wishing I was at camp!

Thanks, Guru! I made up a few draw stops, based on the pictures in their tech manual. Should be OK to get him through the season. My nephew called the dozen closest "dealers" listed on their website, and only one or two were still active dealers. I hope Martin makes it out alive.
