Looking for Old Steel Channel Properties - Please Help

Looking for Old Steel Channel Properties - Please Help

Looking for Old Steel Channel Properties - Please Help

(OP)
I'm trying to find an old book or publication that would have old steel channel properties.  I have found a few books/publications that have old steel shape properties, but they typically only have wide flange shapes.  

The particular section I'm trying to find is a C8x4.7.  This shape is spec'd on a set of plans from '79.  The shape is not present in the 6th or 8th Ed's of the AISC steel manuals, but I do not have the 7th Edition to check.

If anyone has access to an old database of channels or if you could point me to the right place I would be extremely grateful.

Thanks,

Steve

RE: Looking for Old Steel Channel Properties - Please Help

(OP)
Thanks for everyone's help.  RAY72, thanks for the posts, but I'm afraid the weight per foot doesn't match up with your suggestions.  I have also talked to someone at AISC, and they're telling me that it doesn't exist.  So, I'm thinking it must be an aluminum shape (even though the plans make no reference to aluminum).

RE: Looking for Old Steel Channel Properties - Please Help

It appears that it is just a typo. Notice that the weight does not correspond with the depth. Nothing that a site visit can't clear up.

RE: Looking for Old Steel Channel Properties - Please Help

Is there going to be an end to this?
