We received our Misumi slides today. We measured and calculated the lengths we need to have the effective skyscraper arm lift that we want.
Actual length of one extended slide: 16.5â Effective length of one extended slide when installed: 8.75â. Effective length of total slides = number of slides times effective extended length plus length of base slide mounted frame: (5 x 8.75â) + 7.75â = 43.75â + 7.75â = 51.5â So, the total height the arm can reach equals the mounted height plus the length of the arm: Total height = height of base off floor + arm length. 4.5â + 51.5â = 56â At 56â full extension, we can stack the following number of stones (each stone being 5â tall): 56â / Â 5â = 11 stones Realistically, probably 9 stones plus a capstone.
See 01-02-2020 for updated calculations based on actual installation.
