I used 3/4 inch square steel tubing tapped 10-32 threads.

A block of wood to help bend the copper “shoe” that prevents the thumbscrew from chewing up the sticks.

The sticks are notched to receive the steel eliminating the need for a screw and allows the sticks to be thicker.

They have a range from 5 inches to five feet. I made the small one just because.

Just in time to use on my tool cabinet project.
