Kurt, those are boiler seams and they show the plate edges "offset"
or overlapping -- i.e. lap seams. I think the illustration you are
referring to shows THREE plates, of which the one with a bend in it
is a reinforcement plate.
Nice try, but no ceegar.
If someone can find a published prototype name for this type of seam,I'll use it.--- In STMFC@yahoogroups.com, Tim O'Connor <timboconnor@...>
