RE: Time to move on

That project has been on my list for awhile. The price of brass is way down but the premium for rod is very high so I never did it. I'm not exactly broke but if done "right" for every component it could go over
$500 before machining. If you are to go to that kind of trouble I would try to use between 2 and 3 in. dia. brass rod, cut with a fine chop saw and use the smallest brass acorn nut as points. This would mean three threaded holes on one side and one threaded hole on the other so as to attach the small acorn nuts. I think you will find brass rod, especially very wide stuff is very hard to come by unless bought at a very expensive price. Try some 5/8 in. solid brass acorn nuts first to see if you like it. I also have been doing some research and it turns out that woodpeckers don't like brass very much. A good sign. Thanks for thinking of me. Tweaker
