Default Gear leg diameter

Could someone tell me what the diameter of a gear leg (RV7) where the jubilee clip goes? I'm fitting new gear leg fairings and I'm going to turn a piece of alloy billet to make a dummy leg section so that I can do the fibreglass reinforcement work in my warm shed and not in a cold hangar. May thanks.

Had to look up jubilee clip.
My gear legs measured 34.69 mm diameter at the top where the jubilee clip holds the gear leg fairing on.

A Jubilee Clip is a genericized brand name for worm-drive hose clamp, a type of band clamp, consisting of circular metal band or strip combined with a worm gear fixed to one end.
