The LMI Go-Bar Deck is built around specially designed clamps mounted on steel rods rather than threaded rods. This slick feature enables you to raise and lower the deck more quickly than with traditional go-bar decks. The clamps are made from reconstituted HDPE (High-Density PolyEthylene) and should provide years of long life. There are also 4 stop collars included with the GBD
which can be used to set the low point on the deck. You can easily lower the deck with the use of these collars by just loosening all 4 clamps and pushing the top of the deck down from the center - no more tedious turning of nuts! To raise the deck, simply loosen two clamps at a time and push up with your thumbs (instructions and photos are included with the GBD
The top and bottom of the deck are ¾" LDF (light density fiberboard) making them lightweight and less cumbersome to move. Use our CLGOK
go bar rods and our range of radiused dishes
(hollow forms) and you're ready to start gluing up braces in a snap.
Go-Bar clamps/rods are sold separately.
