Re: Anchor bolts project too far

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
So, the anchor bolt is 24" too long.  That is quite a bust in material 
purchase. On the other hand, are you sure the anchor bolt is embedded in 
concrete at all?  Anyway, here is a suggestion.
Field install a chair, in the form of an inverted channel, with the top 
located, say 10" below the top of anchor bolt.  Before installing the chair, 
slip in a steel sleeve over the anchor bolt. Sleeve should fit snug between 
top of base plate and top plate of the chair.  Weld the chair to adjacent 
steel, including base plate.  Put the nut (or nuts) on and tighten.
