RE: Crane Rails

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Since my original e-mail I have found a little more info. The details I have
so far are:

Weight 101.59lb/yd
Rail height 5.687"
Base width 5"
Head width 2.672"

What I really need is the base thickness at its very edge ie where a rail
clip would grip and the internal slope of the base.
