    There is a washer fitted as a knob so I can adjust the height from both sides of the jack, and on the bottom leg on one side is another washer as a knob. Turning that tightens the clamp on the centre arm and allows for an adjustable length. (Some of my rifles have sling studs in different places....)

    lol amazing how a spray can from bunnings hides all the defects.. actually has to spray because the square tubing I salvaged from the old street works sign has patches of rust where the zinc had worn off.

    This stuff is really good https://www.bunnings.co.nz/rust-oleu...ilver_p0374498

    Ha ha, I remember as an apprentice first doing some welding. One of the welders came by and remarked how bad my welding was, but the said, don't worry, it's nothing that 1/2 inch paint won't fix.
