I believe they are available from Camec in Brisbane. I made ours using piano hinge, 5 ply, aluminium angle and a couple of padded seats from redundant chairs, which from memory were approximately 350mm square. Ours are not used as seats, rather leg rests but I guess a lighter body than I could sit on them.

Hi Ron,
Try looking at a used office furniture place - I got a couple of good brackets from the fold down side of an old computer desk.
