I thought I had my 2 tower erection project all ready when I noticed
some 1/4" thimbles in one of my Rohn 45 torque assemblys. The hole
looked small so I tried a 3/8" thimble in it and sure enough, it was too
small to accept the 3/8" thimble. Therefore I cannot use the 1.4"
preformed guy grips because the radius of a 1/4" thimble is too small.
Now I know that in the "old days" we never cared about the radius a guy
wire or a guy grip was going around, but I am trying to do it right this
Do I just "surrender" and use 1/4" clips with the 1/4" thimbles at the
torque bars? (This is my soloution) or does anyone have a better
soloution where I can use grips at the torque arms?
