Hard chrome rod -- where to buy a small quantity, 9/16" dia.

They have 9/16 listed. Very easy people to deal with. My first choice for chrome rod.

.... and now the conclusion to this episode....

Alloys and Components won out. Great place. I wrote them with my very minimal need stating that I understood if it wasn't enough for them to fuss with. They wrote right back, about $20 bucks for a 12" piece. The only thing is I wish I had known shipping was going to be 1-1/2 times the price of the rod. I would have bought a couple more to make better use of the tube.

In the end, I never could find a guideway rod that was 9/16". Seems not to be a standard size. Everywhere I looked jumped from 1/2" to 5/8".

Thanks again for all the help. This project is finally complete.
