My garage door torsion spring relocation is NOT going well.
First, I tried to relocate the spring anchor plate 18" to
the left where I 'thought' there was wood - but that turned
out to be a solid steel beam!
Then, I moved it 12" to the right, where I 'thought' there
was a cripple stud - but - it was just a flimsy piece of wood:
Here is a picture of the relocation:
Here is a closeup of that relocation:
Then, I started work on the right end bearing plate.
Amazingly, there isn't any wood ANYWHERE near it.
What I need is a thick (3 or 4 inch wide) steel plate in the
shape of a big "T" - but I could find nothing like it at
Q: Where can I find sheet metal in the shape of a big "T"?
Note: I need a "T" roughly about a foot long by a foot tall
by about 2 inches wide.
