|Reg. 133, Reg. 134
Where jointed longitudinal stays are fitted, they shall, where
practicable, be fitted with pins having an effective sectional
area 25 per cent in excess of that of the stay. If the pins
are slack in the holes, the total slackness shall not be more
than 1/6 inch. The pins shall be as close as possible to the
shoulder of the eye forging. The shoulder of the forging shall
be at least ½ inch wide all round, i.e., the diameter
at the shoulder shall be not less than the diameter of the hole
plus 1 inch .
Diagonal Bar or Rod Stays
The sectional area of diagonal rod or bar stay shall bear the
same proportion to that of a direct stay as the length of the
diagonal stay bears to the length of the perpendicular line
from the end of the diagonal stay to the surface supported.
The ends of diagonal stays, shall not be bent, but shall be
attached to the plate with revelled washers and nuts or with
riveted tee, blocks or angles and shackle pins (see Regulation
133 for eyes and pins).
