Greetings! I'm new here, but have been lurking for a few weeks and enjoying the conversations and information sharing. Hopefully someone can help me.
I would like to build some folding director's chairs, similar to what's shown in this picture:
The one part I cannot seem to find is the locking support (the folding piece of metal bracing the legs). The closest I have found are lid stays at Lee Valley but these do not quite fit this application.
Does anyone know where I can buy such hardware? I can't believe it would be this hard to find, it seems simple (and common) enough...
