Topic tags/keywords: parts hinges pivots

I am thinking of making one of these magnet powered foot pedal shakers as shown below. I am having trouble sourcing parts?

One is the small hinge or pivot at the base of the foot pedal, you can see in the photo it does not come through the outside of the frame.

The second is the braces, they seem metal and appear to be threaded on each end for a screw and a rubber foot on the front?

Does any one have any links to these type of parts?

Cool, I didn’t know such a thing existed. You may need to fabricate the parts yourself though.

Tubing, steel rod, eyelets or bushings. Not complicated to figure out
and mostly Home Depot type stuff.

Those long exagonal nuts are used to tie threaded rod together
in architectural rigging like in warehouses and theater catwalks.
