Willys,

What does the L/10 represent? Does the 10 mean 10 inches? Thanks

I do go to a scale to get total weight but feel a little intimidated at asking to have them weigh the front and rear separately! Haven't ever tried to pay for the weigh job. I am too cheap. The way I do it is throw a few old newspapers in the car, go to a recycling center, have them weigh before and after I dump the papers and voila!, I have my free weight ticket!

The L in the drawing is the length of the 2x6. Thus if you use a 60" board, L/10 is 6", if you uses a 120" board, L/10 is 12", etc.
