    Yes they are 1.25 grade 8 150,000 psi each. The heads are shouldered in the box, welded to the box at the head and on the shank, welded to the angle that runs under the box and also welded to the 1/4 top plate. The top plate is also welded to the 1/4 angle to reinforce the rectangular tubing in the bolt area. I use this to lift race cars that are in the 2000 pound range. I would use much heaver stock if i were to build for heaver cars. As it is I purchased the bolts and then used "found" stock (AKA scrap or leftovers) I had on hand after the idea came to me one afternoon.

    That is pretty slick.

    will do Rob.

    I'm up against a mountain and a 1/2 with these floor pans, as I said I have not started on them Primarily cos of no time as of yet but also cos I use the chevelle Regularly.

    when I start on it tho it'll be down for awhile. someone welded sheets of metal on top of the actuall Rotting floorpans. so I not only hafta cut thru that, but the floor pans themselfs, A real nightmare under there

    Maybe I'm missing something -
    Is there a reason you just didn't trim down the original roloc holder - it seems like you could cut the face back to the same size as the new one you made ?
    I'm not sure how far back you could trim the roloc disc pad holder, but you have a good point Chuck.

    I just went out and measured the holder, the metal inside the holder looks to be about 5/8'' diameter.

    The way its built leads me to believe that if you trim it down to the metal, it might fly apart, but I'm not sure.

    The nut I used could be safely ground to 5/8'' or maybe even smaller then that.

    Maybe somebody on here could grind down a roloc disc pad holder, but use some caution, like safety googles and a face mask, in case it flies apart.

    Its hard to tell if it will fly apart, or when it might decide to let go, I don't have a clue on that.

    But I know the nut welded on the rod I used won't fly apart.

    So, maybe somebody could do some tests, just be safe.

    I have used the little homemade holder a couple of times.

    On the floor pans of my 69 chevelle. Where the floor pans are plug welded to the floor support, I want a nice clean edge, and that lip along the floor pan support varies from 3/4'' to 1 1/4'' wide, so I can get in there and stay off the edge of the floor support with the little disc.

    I also used it on the rocker panels where the narrow part of it is.

    Anyway, I hope I explained this okay, anybody else got any ideas, nows a good time to sort this out.

    Rob

    Sorry. As small as it gets. It was a small welding job and didn't take long to complete. Just took a while to get to area.
