Default Longeron thickness?

Plans indicate should be .125 thickness, but my actual measurement on the angle is .132.

Can anyone confirm?

I sometimes find angles that have dimensions like that. I don't think it's that uncommon.

On my RV-3B project, I go ahead and use them.

Lorentz contraction perhaps? Maybe the extrusion line was travelling at 32% of the speed of light that day it was made?

I guess I will call vans. I'm not that far in the instructions, but these do not fit in the slots in the aft bulkheads without modification.
