Sickle bar grass rod

Postby Redclip » Thu Jul 25, 2013 8:36 pm

I need to make an outer shoe grass rod; the one that is shaped like a big "U".
Anyone know the proper length?

Thanks

To add to what Lee said, each rod is 36" long, the two rods are spaced 3" apart. Seven inches from the "U" is a bend. If that part is flat on the floor, the two separate ends are up 12"from the floor (didn't have a protractor in the shop).
