  • Deck cable length

    Does anyone know the length of upper and lower deck and scissor cables. I needed an upper deck cable and found several cables of various lengths but none were tagged with part numbers or any identification at all.If anyone has the length of all the cables I could tag and figure out what goes where [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img]

    If you have last year's Quality catalog handy, the lengths are listed there. I'll copy mine and post the lengths tomorrow.

      Re: Deck cable length

      I don't have my books here in vegas, but the quality book does list the lengths and positions...

      What I did was put nails into a vertical 2x4 at the correct heights so that the turnbuckles all touch the workbench, and labeled each nail's location with the position (upper/lower, deck/scissor) and part number. Quick and easy inventory, and impossible to get the wrong cable even if you're in a hurry:
