  1. I found you can buy threaded rods pretty cheat at Home Depot. They are about 5 bucks for a 5/8 in rod 36 inches long.

    Home Depot

  2. I’ve considered those, but:
    – they come in 6′ lengths (which I suppose I can get cut down)
    – they didn’t look very straight, when I saw them in the store
    – I wasn’t sure if the pitch was the same on those as on the designs – and I’m also not sure if it matters. Pitch is the distance between threads.

    So I’ll need to investigate more to determine if those will work.
