I would get another box and drill 1/2 in holes.

Picked up the 8020 material today. Will bring it up to Muncie on Friday when we set up the range.May have to rethink using the corner angles as standoffs, as they may set too square in the middle of the rocket and block the nozzle. If they won't work, some 5/16 bolts should

Reposting this on this thread, as it is more on topic. Has a question regarding whether the tab I bought to use as standoffs for the new rails extended too far. Mark answered that they should not be longer than about an inch. If I mount them with the long portion along the rail, the extended part is only one inch. Thanks Mark! The angles for the 1515 rails are 1.5 inches on the short side.




The images shown are with the long portion extended. It is only a matter of mounting them the other way. There will also be two screws holding them in place that way.

Here it is with the corner angle flipped around. Didn't have a second longer screw with me when I did thid, so i left the anchor one at the end.

Will need a couple of 5/32 and 3/16 allen wrenches/hex keys to work on these if someone has a set they can bring to the set up at least. I have a set to either preassemble here at home or set up on the 26th.

John:
Recommend you use only a single screw. In fact, try it with that screw left loose--lets the standoff slide up/down rail. Once weight is put on it, the bracket pushes down, and locks the standoff in place. Sometime that works better than forcing people to tighten it every time they move it. There is a "happy place" where it slides easily, but locks in place when weight is applied, and the standoff is pushed down.

I have an electronic scale in the basement for shipping. Let me see what range it covers. I don't remember. It might cover us in the 10-20 lb range.
