Clamping Cleats on the Sawbunks
« on: May 30, 2016, 10:29:01 AM »
I'm surveying ideas for clamping cleats before I weld them onto my deck.  I am referring to the small, less than 3/4" high metal blocks or teeth that hold the cant once the squaring arms/side supports are lowered.  I feel like I previously read that ones with a point pierced the log and sometimes cracked it.  Should the cleats be square, angled to make a "tooth", how high, etc?  Thoughts appreciated!

Cheers!
