We’ve got some momentum here.

The center pin is indeed reversible, held by an eentsy (tech term) spring loaded ball. Tug it out and put it in the other way for use with the larger span pins.

The four pins are .25 and are firmly seated and centered in the bar.

The pins are symmetrically located from the center.

The section of the bar is 1/2×3/4.

The magazine blurb was just a description and a picture, much as you see in woodworking mags today and then, mysteriously, a few pages later there’s a paid ad for the very same product.

The mystery remains unsolved but I’m feeling a little better.
