Is this post base a true 6 inches across?

Asked by: Anonymous
No, it is not a true 6" across. The 6" size is an industry standard term, just as a two-by-four wood plank is not, necessarily, 2" x 4"; typically, it is 1-1/2" x 3-1/2", but, it's easier to say "two-by-four". In this case, the true measure of the base is 5-1/2" wide on all four sides, which fits a Home Depot 6"x6"x8' pressure treated timber, which I used as a column post for my front porch (again, the 6" in both dimensions is actually 5-1/2"). If you're still wary about it, bring a measuring tape with you to the store, take the post base to whichever piece of lumber you intend on using, and see if it'll fit (if you decide against using the base, be a good shopper and put it back where you found it!).

Asked by: Anonymous
No, but there are 4x6 versions of this available at Home Depot and they are cheaper!

I'm using pressure treated 6x6 and they are about 1/8" too wide, can I bend the sides a bit to make the posts fit?

Asked by: rick
I have in the past.

This item is great if you approach it a certain way. Here are a few of my suggestions: When you are setting your j-bolts into the concrete piers, make sure you have enough threading for the base + washer + bolt. I use a piece of tape over the end of the bolt at the depth I want and set it into the concrete to that depth. (keeps the concrete out of the threads, too). When you set your piers and j-bolt you have to be fairly accurate with their location because the adjustment is minimal for the post base. Once the concrete is set and you know exactly where the base needs to go you bolt it tight. Once you get the posts on the base it is hard to loosen and tighten the bolts to make any adjustments. Hope this helps. I'm sure there are more and better suggestions out there, but I have used these many times and each time I "find a better way"

Either the post wrap or a sacraficial base is nailed at the bottom to cover the post base and they become invisable. They anchor easily with either an anchor bolt or drill in wedge bolt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6x6 bracket base When used correctly this base securely holds the post in place. Easy to adjust before mounting post. Although costly, this is a requirement for properly mounting a structure laden post.
