Table thickness at COE Parks??

Anyone happen to know the thickness of the concrete cast tables typically found in COE parks. I am building/revising a light/power pole device and want to be sure the clamp I use is large enough, but not to large. This is one of my winter projects and I lost my dimensions. Thanks for any and all help.
Home bound and stuck till the thaw, but still plotting and dreaming.

I think you're going to find that's a regional thing. In my area, COE tables are wooden. I'd make something that's adjustable from 6" down to nothing if it were me.

Same here,,, But I'd guess 4" for concrete around here...

Thanks all. My new clamp is from 6" to 1/2". That should do it. Don't want anything bigger.

The c-clamp I use was pressed rather than cast. The reason being that originally I planned to drill holes (which I feared might crack a cast clamp) and screw the clamp to the conduit. Instead I used JB Weld 2 part epoxy. So after cutting the clamp in two, extending it to my desired length, I then JB'ed it to the conduit.
The GFI in the outdoor box provides two outlets, as does the one in the porcelain socket. A small vinyl shade, clips to the bulb itself, has a Tupperware type lid velcroed to it to hold it in place and add space for the heat to escape, but yet keep moisture off the hot bulb.
Not real fancy, but sure does work.
