Re: Big Foot Tools Bolt Hole Marker?


I'm with everyone else, we had them and they worked great if you had room to keep the mudsill stock flat.

Now we just use Simpson MASA straps. So as fast as you can scatter the material and shoot it down . . .

Then have someone shoot the straps on with a PP gun while 2 guys start setting girders

(assuming a crawl)

I would love to use those straps, but the concrete guys around here are so bad they would probably screw those up too. The house i am on now other than being 2 1/2" out of square, the anchor bolts around inside of the garage were all on the wrong side, so i had to use a 2x8 sill plate.

I wish I had a dollar for every time that's happened in the last 17 years they either forget there's brick or they think there's brick when there isn't.

Yep, can be a major pain in the ars. I had one house that used a plate ledge, 2" above the brick ledge. The concrete guy sticks the bolts in the brick ledge and not any in the plate ledge down the whole side of the house.
