delrin/pvc bar, saw a notch on both ends, drill a hole through the notch, and butcher the clip ends of the delivered mounts at the screw joint and insert that into the notch (and drop a screw through all three sections). Now you have an adjustable angle kwonbar-style setup. Add a nut on the bottom of the screw and you could have a locking angle even. I'm going to dig out the tools either this weekend, or the second weekend in May and tinker with it.

Got ya.  Sounds simple enough...well cutting Delrin, not so much.

As the saying goes; "where there's a will (and excellent powertools), there's a way."

Likely I'll do the prototype out of thick wall PVC just because it's handy. I'm not even sure where I'd get delrin rods in this town... Likely have to order them.

Yep, I'd have to order them as well.  Every time I have tried to cut it on my band saw I end up melting it.

I work in a ceramics manufacturing machine shop a long while ago. We used Delrin to make fixtures to hold the ceramic as it was being machined.
We used a lathe to cut and shape the Delrin. It worked very well doing it that way.
Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

I totally watched RedGreen when I lived up north.

On that note, if someone knows of anything lighter than delrin or PVC, I'm open to suggestions.

Have you considered 3/4" hardwood dowel? Certainly lighter than delrin, maybe even lighter than the PVC. Not too expensive, can be found in most hardware stores, easy to work with, even if you just make the prototype with it.

That is what I was considering for a test.  I have a few pieces around the house.  It would certainly be easier (for me) to work than Delrin.

Seriously? For some reason I would have thought that to be heavier than PVC (note, I'm likely going to use the pipe, not the solid stuff).
