Re: Deck Beam Installatio
Posted by Kyle T on Mar 6, 2006
Instead of trying to use the deck beam for support while installing the deck and then removing it a better solution is to develop a temporary bulkhead. I found this to be a whole lot easier than the deck beam to temporarily hold in place since it needed to be quite sturdy. Be sure to use packing tape on the edges so that none of them try to become permanent.
I used this method on my super light tandem project then added a couple of strips along the inside of the deck for additional (but lighter) stiffness
