I could have used something like this this weekend in Muncie. But I could
create one out of parts from my storage bins, or a bucks worth of hardware
from the local store.

Why is it they feel the need to require a tool out at the pad?  A simple
knob would allow you to install and adjust the dern thing and you don't have
to worry about dropping it in the dust.

I did the same thing with my rail for about 25 cents using a carriage bolt
from the local hardware store.

I makes it seem more like science if we need a tool right ?

That too. A thumbscrew or wingnut for making adjustments...

Excellent question. And easily answered.
My guess was that a knob would be sticking
out, in the way, or worse, in the exhaust
stream getting fried. The latter proves
to be the case:

From the pic, it's obvious that the***and
stop are nice and compact.  A knob would only
be in the way...unless you're using a knob
motor :)

All you need for a rail stop is:

1) A***or bolt small enough to fit inside the rail channel. I'd use
stainless steel if possible.

2) A matching thumbscrew. Also stainless if possible.

3) An optional washer.
