Change in Groove angle for UW 20.1 Sketch (d)

Is there a provision in Section VIII to increase the groove angle from 45 deg to 60 deg for configuration UW 20.1 (d)?

RE: Change in Groove angle for UW 20.1 Sketch (d)

I don't see where any particular angle is required. I think you would be bound by the smaller of the two "ag" dimensions.

Note that from your post, it is not known where you measure your angle from.



The problem with sloppy work is that the supply FAR EXCEEDS the demand

RE: Change in Groove angle for UW 20.1 Sketch (d)

Thanks Mike.

Although I do agree that there is no particular restriction on the angle, all the sketches, both vertical and horizontal dimensions are indicated as 'ag'. which made me come to the conclusion that the angle is bound to 45 deg. Just wanted to make sure that increasing the angle does not violate any code requirements.
