steering box brace up-date

i forget who all was rapping with me on this but i got the 2" clamp from a fire-sprinkler supply house as suggested by H* and sure enough- fits like a champ. better fit than the one i made. here is a pic.

Cool! what did it cost? $2?
Its kinda funny, I very often walk through my construction projects after hours, to evaluate quality, and progress, with no one their to distract me. I cant even count the times that I have walked up on the stock piled supplys from various trades, and found engineering inspiration by the countless little doodads.

Re: steering box brace up-date

yep- $2.41! good guess....
i called a couple places and asked if they knew what a "seismic clamp" was and that terminology didn't set well for arizona probably. but one guy steered me in the right direction to the place where i got it. when i went down there the guy took me back in the isles full of hardware and showed one thing that didn't EVEN come close. then i drew a quick sketch and off we went down another isle and SCORED. they were too long by a couple inches so i sawz-alled them down and they fit perfect even with their pre-drilled holes and bolts. looks like 3/16" gauge.

yeah that's about the only thing i miss about construction staking- all the littel "bennies" i used to scab on!
