Go buy yourself a 5/16X24 hex bolt and hacksaw the head off leaving a flat. Then spin in a drill against the belt sander till it is flat.

Then find yourself some sticky back Velcro, the female smooth kind.

Match stick and angle it on the bottom to make the pivot point level with the shelf and raise the velcro adjacent to the Bolt head.

Then another piece of velcro or Mole hair/leather on the bolt head.

Now slot it with a hack saw for a screwdriver and break the sharp edges so you do not rack yourself or you clothes and you have an adjustable "Off the shelf" rest.

Good idea Sam, I want a bigger head. I was bummed I can't find anchor bolts in -24 thread pitch. I might pick up a 1/2" bolt and turn it down and thread it to the 5/16-24.

Good idea Sam.

For those that don't want to tap another hole in their riser closer to the shelf, you can use one of these in the existing plunger hole, turned vertically. It's plastic so you can easily trim it to whatever height necessary. Cover with whatever side plate material you prefer.



They cost about 5 bucks.
