M2 Mine Rack Drawings
« on: April 10, 2015, 09:07:35 PM »
Hello all. I spent a few hours at the shop today making some drawings of my mine racks. All the measurements are within 1/16 of an inch accurate I believe.

In this photo you can clearly see the channel cut out in the lower corner but I don't think it is necessary.

Does anyone know if the racks have drain holes? What is the size and placement of the drain holes in the bottom of the racks?

Thanks
Gary

Mine have three 3/4" holes. One in the center and one at 1-1/2" in from each end. I got these dimensions from another mine rack and I don't know if it was an original but it seemed reasonable enough.
