Re: Short Anchor Bolts Again

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
It is now my practice to specify the elevation of the top of anchor rod,
rather than the projection. Lots of whining but no recent short anchor

I get more feedback for the ASTM F1554 spec. Usually, the complaint is that
these are very expensive anchors and you can't get them easily. It makes me
teary-eyed in sympathy ... NOT.
