The walking back & forth when you crank the handle is why I used my crank arm as the slider attach point for the bar. (if that makes sense)

For adjustment I have bronze flanged bushings that slide on the rod & slotted the flange they ride in. That slotted flange then slides in the bent 3/8" bars welded to the crank extension.

By having the crank handle far enough away, I get minor deflection when I raise or lower the head. To adjust the "anti-pivot" bar, I left everything loose, then made the head square with the table. Locked down all the adjustments & it stays square when up or down.
