Very neat, very strong, very nice.
Hi Olly, coming from you that means an awful lot to me. I often look at your pics in awe
I did know there is no need to level the mount as I read it in one of your posts
I can’t however fathom out how to use just one plate. The problem is that this tube would have to be inside the pier.
Also the distance between the threaded bar inside the pier is less than the diameter of the EQ6 base.
This would cause the bolts to foul. I did consider using only 1 plate but came to the conclusion that the diameter of the pier would have to be huge in order to accommodate this arrangement. I might be missing something simple though
The weak point as far as I can see are the 4 threaded bars that go into the pier. I am planning on spraying the plates then filling this void with resin and setting the bottom plate on it before it cures. I assume this will improve rigidity?
I don’t intend leveling the mount properly, which is why I went for the 6 bolt mounting between the plates. Rigid over level.
As far as progress goes, I have cut the wooden blocks to go between the concrete pads and the main joists. I will fit a DPC (Damp proof course) to these but for added protection, I am soaking them in preservative
My main concern is how to fit the door; no idea what to do :icon_scratch:Tomorrow is spraying day. I know how to do that so an easy day
Thanks for looking,
