As dumb as it sounds, I'm building a 54mm av bay (my first), and am looking for a source of threaded rod. I'm looking for two pieces 8" long and 1/8" in diameter. I assume that Home Depot/Lowes doesn't carry this, so where would I find a source? Would a hardware store carry it? I don't really want to go online, wait, pay shipping. etc. so McMaster-Carr is out.

Lowes and Home Depot both carry it, usually in the same isle as the mail boxes.

Incorrect assumption. I've always gotten my threaded rod at Lowe's or ACE. They carry all diameters up to at least 3/8". At Lowe's I've found both 12" sections and 24" sections. I use a dremel cut-off wheel to cut them to the proper length.
