Just to be clear, I had nothing to do with that ingenuity only found it on You Tube.

David,

Where did you find the wheels (wood with rubber) on the support end of your setup...?

Again, I just found the video on You Tube. I would go there to ask the author. I hope he is a member of this forum or joins.

I used the nylon ball-bearing roller wheels from the top track of a trashed glass shower door on a bathtub. These wheels have a groove around their circumference which ride in the aluminum track. If you can obtain some of these wheels you will find a certain size neoprene "O Ring" will stretch and fit beautifully in this track. Secured by bolts and nuts, side-by-side and overlapped these wheels have worked perfectly for many years for me.
