Roof/Floor Trusses **PRICE REDUCED**

18 posts in this topic

I have (37) 22'-0" long, 18" deep open web wood floor/roof trusses. The trusses have a bearing point of 20'-0" allowing a 2'-0" cantilever on one end. These trusses were used within an office building that was taken apart but would be great for a shed, cabin, playhouse, etc. Some have nails in them yet but these can easily be pounded back out. Buyer must take entire lot. I contacted a truss company in the area and was told trusses of this nature are worth $70/truss ($2,590.00). Selling for $50/truss or $1,850.00. Almost $800.00 off of original price!! Buyer must have trailer as I cannot deliver. Any questions, please ask.

I've dropped the price to $45/truss for a total of $1665.00. This is almost 1/2 the price of new. Someone out there needs these and I need to clean the garage! Let's make a deal.

Anyone else have plans to build a shed or deer shack? These would be the ticket! The trusses even have the block-out for larger trunk lines of ductwork if needed.

Trusses are still here and need to go. Who's got a building project lined up for the spring or summer? These trusses would be the ticket if you can incorporate them into your plans!

Do you have the spec.sheets to verify,live load & dead load to pass inspection? If so I would take them.

Sparcebag,

I checked on the trusses and found several labels on them regarding TPI and tested by Western, etc., but I currently do not a cut sheet or spec sheet on the truss. If you'd like, I can try to track down the original builder of the building to see if they may have anything that would indicate that, but I can't promise anything. Let me know how you want me to proceed.

Sparcebag,

I have checked through the trusses only to find the typical manufacturer stamps on them and have also tried to make some calls to who may have built the building that these were in to see if they could come up with a shop drawing or a truss design calculation, but this was to no avail. If you're still interested, please let me know otherwise I will be bringing these to a local auction the end of april and they will be gone. Thanks!

Dont go through too much!you could call local building inspection Dept. see if they yet have them on file.I know I wont get by using them with a inspection and to have a engineer spec.them would be over cost!

Sparcebag,

I looked at the trusses again this weekend and was able to find a stamp on one of the trusses that said this:

Manion Lumber & Truss

Truss Fab #061

40 lb LL Design

Esco

Wondering if this is what you were referring to? If this helps clarify things, please let me know. Thanks.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
