"Attach the 12" length section of 1/2" diameter rod to the center frame piece using a 5/16"" length screw. Mark on it where the centerline of the catch plate is."
There are no 5/16" screws on the part list. What do I use?
AH. Sorry - noticed this mid post. The next part is
"Attach the 12" length rod to the rear frame piece again
using a 3/8" length screw. Install a set screw into the newly tapped hole by hand."
So it's just a typo. Had me going crazy for a second.
I'm just going to keep editting in things I notice could be clearer into this post for anyone who gets stuck along the way.
Step 11: By set screw he means the lone one from the very last section on the parts list. I used one of the 3/4" screws though and it seems alright so far.
Step 12: He's using the 3/8" screws for this
Step 18: There are no 5/16" screws again.. I used 3/8". Where it says 3/8", you need to use 1/8" or else the screw won't let the plunger tube slide in for step 19.
Step 21: If you end up using a threaded rod you will of course need another lock nut. Keep that in mind when buying the materials.
Step 29: There are no 5/16" screws again.. I used 3/8".
Here's how to fit the 1/4" parts in a 16" x 4.5" space.
