Nice Drawing!
Yes, the bolt goes all the way through the tube- though I would love the see
the face of the contractor if we specified it the other way! ;-)

Thanks, Joe

Am I envisioning this correctly?


    Tube Column
    |      |_______________
    |      ||
    |      ||
    |      ||
    |      ||   ---
    |      ||___| |___________
    |      |----| |----
    |      ||   --- Bolt
    |      ||
    |      || Angle Seat
  __|______||__
  |           | 
  ------------- Bolt 
    |      ||
    |      ||


If so, remember that the bolt is in shear on both faces of the column, i.e.
the inner shear plane counts double.

If not, how do you plan on getting the nut on the inside of the tube?
