Oh Boy, here we go again with the Fountain length thing.

I'm sure Reggie includes every inch of the beak and every 1/4 inch of the rubrail thickness.

If your shop is too short, cut a 10" diameter hole in the wall and cover it on the outside with a highway cone. That'll gain ya almost 2 feet of Fountain storage space.
