Perimeter rail front corner gussets
« on: March 13, 2020, 02:33:19 AM »
Found a piece of metal I think might be a gusset for one of the front corners, I've seen a couple different styles. One style mounts underneath and is welded in (seen 2 variations of this underneath one) and one that is bolted with 4 half inch hex bolts that sits on top. Anyone have pics, this is the one I found on the left, made 2 more to match but not sure they are correct.

I have that plate on mine. They are on the top of the rail in the front corners. I’m not sure if they were put there to help support the pulpit. They were both bolted and welded.

Here's a shot of mine.
Plate bolted from below on each side.

Thanks,

Sure I will get some dimensions for you, it is an odd shape.

I finally got this file to upload, not the best drawing but I gave it a shot. ;D I can measure hole locations if someone needs it.
