After doing 3-8 QA inspections a month for the same builder you’d think he’d have them trained by now.
Notice how many slip gouges in the head rail from the stripped bit of the screw gun.
16’s are so much easier.
At least the screws were almost plumb and level.
The “New Rule” boilerpoint report statement is:
“Photo is self explanatory, follow label instructions!”
I have had the chance to point out this problem to 4 different code inspectors around here, all in new construction. They all told me that it wasn’t a code issue.
I, politely, informed them that manufacturer’s instructions always supercede local code. I explained that if there is a record of the code inspector approving it, they are opening themselves, and their department, to liability if someone gets hurt.
KHS was yankin’ my (our) chain and as a good sportsman I was yankin’ back
not big on smileys so you may have to read between the lines
But thanks to all for keeping me informed, lest I forget, I don’t know everything
Once had an Asian gentleman, at a training seminar, tell me they are “plus screws” the other ones are “minus” I won’t try to immitate the accent but it rhymed with brush
