RE: Macomber Joists

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I've found a 414P "V Purlin" joist size from around 1961, as well as a 1960 414VP "V-Lok" joist, but I'm a little confused about the other numbers/ letter.  Are these 14' deep joists that are spanning 24'-4" and 23'-8" respectively?  I'm not quite sure what the J or K stands for - if it were the style of joist the size would be called out differently.
