[quote=mtbvert;18681807]Mounting the rail differently will not change the angle of the elbow rest, it will only bring the level up a few inches.
Take the picture above again, but with the lower flat of the rail on your existing bar top, then stack up some scrap ply to simulate what you will need to add to raise the bar top to meet the upper flat.
Make sense? Refer back to the cross section of my rail below:QUOTE]
Simply put, no it does not make since. Changing the angle it is mounted at does change the angle of the elbow rest. There is no reason to stack crap wood on top, I already have crap wood on the bottom. (refer to pictures already posted further up) The peice you have isnt anywhere near the same shape on the bottom. I am guessing your rail has the width of about 4", mine is 4 3/4" wide and made slightly different.

Opus, I thought the same thing at first. But it does not work, turning the rail over only make the angle even more steep. I can flip the rail and send you a pic if necessary, but its not a symmetrical peice so it hangs lower.
Thanks your the ideas though. Got anything else!?
