1 1/2" x 1/4" aluminum bar stock
3/8" aluminum tubing (I got this from a broken DVD rack, one side is already drilled and tapped with its own screw included)
3/8" rubber nipple
tap and die set
Step 1: Sizing and cutting
- Grab your aluminum bar stock ( you could use steel as well) and cut off a 2" to 3" section.
- With a sharpie and square mark your center. Also mark the center at the top of the bar stock.
- Using a center punch make a pilot hole.
