Step one- I mark 2-1/2" finish face
I prefer to do it the way faster and tighter
Typically your only making a short piece so you can jam it into the break and get it 5/8" no problem .Randy Bush said:Nice ,but still hard to make that fit tight for aluminum soffit. :sad:
5/8 is just not tight enough for 1/2 and under aluminum. When you take the 2 pieces of J back to back and make a hemming piece that is not to tight it sides right on the j making it look like factory H. I do this in place too.Typically your only making a short piece so you can jam it into the break and get it 5/8" no problem .
Ill be honest on small stuff, i just miter the soffit together with 1/4" gap and the take a piece of metal the same width as my facia lip hemm it on both sides and nail it up
I started making these like this, but the non "J" pocket side never laid tight to the soffit like I wanted- and only in retro work with full blocking/ plywood can this be used.I prefer to do it the way faster and tighter
I don't use aluminum soffit- but the J for aluminum is tighter and looks like it would do the trick.Nice ,but still hard to make that fit tight for aluminum soffit. :sad:
