    Default Best method for securing beams to piers

    I'd like to find or weld up my own set of adjustable beam to pier mounting brackets. Anybody know of any out there that would work for piers about 12" diameter and posts about 8" wide (yet to be milled)?

    I'm thinking large dia. thread all with nuts welded into brackets where the nuts would be stationary and the thread all would screw up or down into the post or up through the beam. with welded nuts centered on the thread all to enable wrenching it. (the stationary nuts would have to be opposite threaded like tie rod ends of course)

    Any thoughts?

    I guess a larger version of a saddle jack...depends on what you are putting on it.

    Yes, thank you. The only ones I could find were Home Depot Mobile Home jacks that didn't look as good as those.

    Do you remember how much weight they were rated for and how much they cost? I would rather find something locally even if its not pretty. It's going to be under my cabin.
    That's what she said...
