RE: Wood Truss Connection Design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Rich,

I have done a lot of repairs and modifications to wood trusses using 3/4" plywood gussets sandwiching the 2x4 truss members.  I use a bunch of nails, usually 16d, and clinch them.  I have used thru-bolts at various times also.  The gussets allow the flexibility for size adjustment to get enough nails.
