My washer stock from the Raven Kit don't seem to sized correctly. They are 1"x1" square and .070 stainless steel. The end of the drag blocks are 1" x .75", and so I need to trim the washers down.

Problem is, its not a pretty result. I was just wondering if uwing 2 AN970 washers would be an ok alternative?

The plans call for a single washer, but it's generally accepted that thicker washers are required - so is 2x washer as strong as one thicker one?

any ideas?
