Unfortunately, my Replicator can't resolve the threads as designed in the STL file.  I'm also realizing that you used SCAD.  I need to start playing with that program!  Thanks!!

Nice. Simple is always good...deceptively simple. Until you look at the scad file.

Is there a magic number I can change in the scad file to be able to use 1/4" rod? Got plenty of it and none of the 5mm.

Oops, yes, it should be simple to adjust for different rods. 80%-90% of the code is for the screw thread on top. If you want to adjust the holes for the rods, you need to change the last few lines:

translate([-1, 0, 1]) rotate([0,30, 0]) rotate([180,0,0]) cylinder(r=5/2,h=100);

That r= needs to be adjusted then.

Yep, that changes the size of the holes but then the base is too small. I'll look at the code and maybe work in some more parameters. Later.
