Howdy all, I'm hoping someone could grab some measurements from a NACRA ds rod casting (the piece that sits on the v-strap with the rod sitting in it). I have a welding shop about to add a piece over the top of the 'v' to isolate/strengthen some corrosion and an uneccesary hole, and I don't think the casting wil fit over the welding afterwards. So I want to incorporate the job of the casting into the welded piece. I specifically need to know how thick/high the casting is (minus the depth of the rod indent, and the v-strap indent. ie. Height of ds rod off v-strap surface) so my ds rod will sit at the correct height. Thanks!
PS. also still looking for a couple of used half-moon beam nut castings. I have a lead on one pair but need another pair.
