Default Making an edge guide?

I saw this link
Build your Router Edge Guide and save money! Learn how.

I was wondering if anyone has an idea of where I could purchase the rods and lock collars. I doubt they would be at HD or Lowes. Any help appreciated.

I built a prototype from 3/4" acrylic. 18" rods. The lock collars I had to order, so they should be here next week. I didn't have the solvent for welding the acrylic together so I screwed them with nuts and 3" screws. They glide easily against various surfaces and I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out. The collars will be stainless steel. Opinions or suggestions are welcome.
