Default brute4c : Cab bow measurements

Cab bow measurements
Post by brute4c on Jun 5, 2006, 3:48pm

OK...since people have been asking, I measured everything on a cab bow that I could think of and included a couple pics for reference...remember, both the front and rear cab bows are with the following info, even if you have no bows, you should be able to make 2 and be set.

Pic of bow:

Note that the bow has big curves at the ends and a slight bend in the middle of the long run to both is not flat across the top.

Straight line length from center to center of the bottom of the bow ends: 54.25 inches
Overall length of bow measured along its surface from end to end, outside of the curves, top in the above pic: 68 1/4 inches.
Overall length of bow measured along its surface from end to end, inside of the curves, bottom in the pic above: 6 3/4 inches.
Outside diameter of tube: 1 inch
Inside diameter of tube: 7/8ths inch
Wall thickness: 1/16ths inch
Sitting as in the above pic, distance to bottom of bow exactly in the center: 9.5 inches
Sitting as in the above pic, distance to top of bow exactly in the center: 10.5 inches
Length of straight vertical section on bow ends, measured on the outside, before the curve starts: 8 3/4 inches

2nd pic:

Notice the piece of grey angle iron below the bow....
Measuring from the end of the bow on the upper right, down the side of the bow itself, down toward the angle iron....

10 inches to the angle iron, 9 inches to the bottom of the bow at that point.
