supports for slider track

I made a camera slider that runs along a 10 foot 2"x6" plank. I'm trying to figure out what to support each end with that is adjustable?

I'm using saw horses now, but they don't adjust in height.

maybe a headless tripod on each end?

anyone have a nice solution?

How about a couple of heavy-duty lighting stands with brackets made up to fit the width of the plank?

That could work. I'll look into that - thanks.

I realized that when I'm using the slider I won't be using my camera tripods - so I'm going to attach two quick release plates on the bottom of the track and use the tripods to support it.

perfect solution - adjustable from 2' to 5'!
