I did that without the groove or a notch, no problem on the carpet tracks after10+runs.

Make your own pins, grind a nice smooth round divot for your setscrew, or perhaps, none at all!

The smallest rods you can buy are like 200mm long, so cut a dozen, and sell to the locals who are cracking their pins. :-) You'd probally come out ahead.
