Trouble finding 5inch 5/16 bolt for Middle assembly - Cut threaded rod?

Just wondering if it would be a problem to cut a 5 inch piece of threaded rod and secure it at both ends with nuts instead of using a 5 inch bolt?

Having a real hard time finding a 5/16-18 X 5 bolt in Vancouver Canada…

Thanks for the advice!

I think you’ll be fine, good idea.
