Thanks Pete and everyone, really fantastic input.
Using the new bolt info, it's refined a little more:

I can't find anything suitable on MMC ( )
so Chuck's probably right, machine them up. Maybe start from a long 5/16" shank hex-head bolt and put the
countersink and 1/4-20 thread on.
Thanks for the drawing for the kickplate. I'm assuming the plate goes on after the feet have been placed
on the rack, and the #10 screws hold it all together. I'm guessing the kickplate is 16 guage sheetmetal..?
