Re: Pier for 1100GTO #Guiding
Stone, Jack G
What do you guys think about the Le Sueur pier?
It’s designed to accommodate many of the adapters for various mounts.
Not sure, but I’ve seen many for sale on CN and AM

If you bury the tube in the concrete you are locked in to the orientation and any shift over time. This can be a big issue if you have climate that is in the snow belt like me. It is far better to pour a concrete base and have bolts imbedded
that will allow connection to the pier base. That way you can adjust for orientation (using slotted holes) and getting the pier top level by adjusting the nuts on the bolts on each side of the pier bottom plate. One person in this topic mentioned burying
his tube 24" deep. That won't work if you are in the snow belt....it needs to be burred deeper. If in the snow belt I would check with city or contractors about how deep it should go to ensure it won't move around as the soil shifts.
