Hello, I’m calculating dimensions of threaded rods that will be attached to a steel T bar. It’s important that I get everything right, so I thought that consultation might be a good idea.

What I’m doing is best described in pictures.

The diameter of the rods is 19 millimeter. The diameter of the threading of the rod is M8. The nuts I’ll use is these http://www.fasteners.eu/standards/DIN/934/ The value ”e” describe the overall diameter of the nuts, they only tell the ”minimum”, but I need to now the maximum.. Anyway, I try to calculate how much space will be left for the nut if the T bar is 3.5mm thick (as described in figure: Dim 3 right bottom corner). The (minimum) total diameter of the nut is 14.38mm according to DIN 934, so I need to have atleast 16mm as a minimum marginal space.

The reason why the rods in the 2-D image in the left corner (seen from above) overlap eachother is this:

The figure to the left is how the rods are assembled. What’s the total diameter of the figure to the left?
