Topic tags/keywords: question

I’m currently working on a glider rocker (adirondack style) and would like to know if anyone can give me some insight on the location of the rocker arms or how to figure the location from the size of the chair! Glider arms are 8.5 inches center of bearings if that helps.

An older post so this has probably been long resolved, but it struck a chord with me as I bought some hardware from Lee Valley a while ago and of course in my normally slow progress didn’t get around to installing the hardware ‘til recently. For the life of me I could not find the information sheet that originally came with the hardware and I was afraid that if I tried to figure it out that not only would I be slow in getting this project done but I’d also screw up the expensive hardware. So pride firmly being stomped on I contacted LV, explained why I was calling and ‘hey presto!’ not only did they explain to me how to install the hardware they both snail mailed and emailed me a pdf a copy of the instructions! I guess the moral of this story is check with the vendor, they can be really helpful!

I’m sure there are some vendors that would be that helpful but, LV certainly leads the pack when it comes to customer service…...and product quality, too.
