Gene, I would be simply placing concrete blocks on the stacks just as I do anywhere else that I stack wood to dry.  I知 sure I知 not getting the psi that you are talking about needing.

You guys have some grand ideas, but I think I知 gonna stick with the 澱ox of rocks.

Mike, in my structural collapse training we learn to use 4x4 wedges to apply pressure to our strut systems.  We rip an 18 4x4 from corner to corner and then keep those sets together so they mate perfectly.  Then we can place that and use 2 hammers to drive from the sides and apply pressure.  A person could go out and bang on those every few days to keep the pressure, but like you said, you may need spacers if the stack doesn稚 go all the way up.

I知 still waiting to see what my buddy is gonna have extra as far as amounts of racking.
