Re: Luggage racks

I'll call pony express tomorrow and get details about boxing and prices. I think brown trucks are cheaper.

Re: Luggage racks

I feel I owe you more than I paid you just because of the tape you used! You get an A+ in packing.
I looked high and low for some rod like that, nothing within 120 miles. I think I am going to drill the holes out to the next size and use conduit. Actually, copper fits but the price is pretty rude.

Re: Luggage racks

Glad they showed up OK. You might try driving a drift of the appropriate size through to enlarge the holes. Also I wonder if a wooden dowel
might be as strong as the aluminum tube?

Re: Luggage racks

I used a drift, that helped. I cant seem to find anything 5/8 OD, its all ID. Except for the copper and possible the dowel. Couldnt find 5' dowel though. I'll find something............
