C) Creating the washer

Next is the washer.  You can use an acrylic piece or make your own washer out of metal sheet.  The washer is the same diameter as the outer edge of the extension tube you cut in section A).  Cut the metal sheet, grind it down, and drill 4 holes at 0, 90, 180, and 270 degrees.

The holes are drilled along 2 perpendicular lines.  Use a drill bit that will fit 4-40 screws..

Next line the holes up on the Kango as shown below.  Drill small pilot holes into the metal ring in the Kango.  Tap the holes to accept 4-40 screws.

Drill the center of the washer and fit an 8-32 or a 10-24 screw.  This will attach to the bottom tubing later on.
