RE: Lag Bolts into Narrow Face of a Stud

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If you are using CD=1.25, with 260# per SDS screws, you only need 5
screws. This seems to a neat solution. 
Further, since you have 1.75" side member instead of 1.5", you should
be on conservative side.

Or a custom fabricated heavy gauge bent plate with a few thru bolts. 
your loads are really *that* big that a few A35's won't work, then I
would definitely not be screwing around with trying to get a lag bolt
into the side of a 2x stud.

Two problems for my condition, the load requires me to use 4 A35, they
would need to be offset from each side to avoid nails coming from each
side, making the ledger very deep. The other problem is nails heads
the A35 sticking out of the ledger (i.e. 3" long nail, with 1.25 of
sticking out of the 1.75" thick ledger)... then you would need to use
screws, not high values with only 1.75" of penetration... don't wanna
use a thicker ledger either.
How about using HGA10 instead of A35
