I need a support for a drop leaf table, similar the attached pic (from Rockler), but that is suitable for outdoors. i like the rockler option, but its not stainless. Any ideas?

This may help. The Zinc Plated might meet your demands for outdoor.

Thanks. But I need something that extends straight (as opposed to folding over)

Don’t see an attached pic, but you could just use a pair of wood bars in a stainless steel sleeve (your local metal shop can fabricate the sleeves—or you can just use a SS square tube for the sleeve.)

Or a stainless square tube could replace the wood bars.

This is the missing pic. I suppose I can look for SS tube at HD.

Or…. make it all out of wood, with some SS screws to attach to the table:
