I just realized that I could use my drill bits to find the right size. It turns out that I was way over with 3/8". My eyeball must be getting out of calibration. I found that a 9/32" drill bit fits just right. Thanks for the help.

So, a 1/4" rod is perfect, a little slop (1/32") isn't a big deal; there's two rods to keep it in alignment.

For our metric friends, 3/8" is the the same as 6/16". Stick measured his at 5/16"...somebody's mistaken.
Hey Dan, if this was a conversion to metric, shouldn't it be in millimetres? Metric doesn't do fractions.

No conversion; a translation for our Imperial fractions challenged friends.
