    Need a Center to Center Fork Measurement Please

    If someone would be so kind to give me a measurement I would appreciate it.
    This would be from a JDQA set using the standard 3" wide x 1.18" thick tines.

    I need a center of fork tine to center of fork tine measurement with the forks locked into the frame notches where it is closest to a 30" center.
    I'm building a cart that will hold my blower as well as the forks in 2X4 box tubes.

    Thanks

    You have 27 3/4 or 33 3/4. That's the 4th & 5th notches from the center respectively.

    By design, the dimension would be 28" even. Then, 34" even. But 1/4" off shouldn't kill anyone.

    Hey man, it was free steel!
    If you've ever been on a jobsite where you get float loads of slope or barrier fabric you know of what i speak.
    They use new pieces of box tubing or C-channel in the trailer stake pockets. I'm sure it's included in the price of the load.
    Many seem to make it in the back of pickups after unloading.

    So now i'm waiting for a sunny day that gets up into the 50's or so that i may make it green.
    I will be able to store the blower and the forks, as well as be able to move the dolly on the forks, as well as roll it out of the way.
    I also could use a small MIG. Welding thin wall tubing with stick can get on one's nerves.
    Even though when i was almost finished i decided to go up to a 1/8" 7018 and drop down to the 3/32" setting.
    Made a world of difference and allowed me to patch over some of the holes i burned through.
