Designing Telescoping using 80/20inc parts

80/20 Inc. does not offer any telescoping options in their product catalog. A series of 3 designs were created in an attempt to create this functionality.

2 T-slotted bars slide parallel to each other through the use of the 80/20 Linear bearing kit.
Telescoping Design 1
A 1" hollow square tube will slide inside of a second 1.5" hollow square tube with a locking handle.
Telescoping Design 2
Same as the original design except replace the T-slotted bars with 1" hollow tubes.
