a_burgeranyone have experience with modular rails? Want to make two c rails that can be joined into an S for both transportation ease and setting up the S both ways
Arena has this video and the S rail at the end is exactly what were going for. Seems like they use a narrower male connector and some bolts to do it, but it strikes me as something you could catch an edge on. Anyone ever slide one of these? Is it something we could pull off at a small mountain using 1 inch steel handrail?
I wouldn't worry too much about the seam honestly. I'd grind down one side a bit though so there's a slight drop onto the downhill side Or maybe put the smaller piece on the downhill side flush or almost with the surface. Then the uphill side will be lifted that 1/4" or whatever.
Idk, I've never built one though. I've worked at a few places that had some modular boxes but we never actually bolted any of them together.
Most people run 2" for the most narrow round rails
Idk, I've heard of them being a pain in the ass to deal with but haven't tried to connect anything myself. Issues getting everything lines up and connected wasn't that easy with some features for people. With things like an S it's tough because it's a one way feature so I get it. Maybe build a z rail going to the left and an s rail going to the right. Idk what kind of features you have or need.
I guess you could give it a whirl, and if it doesn't pan out just weld it solid as an S or cut any excess off.
If you do it post up. Def interested to hear how it works. Multi features that aren't connected can be a pain in the balls places that get a lot of sun and in the spring. I'm always open to finding out that the modular life isn't to shabby.
