Re-locate or remove post in basement


No doubt you have the software, but do you have the skill and training to use the software correctly? An old professor of mine once told me that the time to take out the software was when you already had a good idea what the answer was. None of the calculations are rocket science, but the details can be killer.

Not sure haw you can tell it's a temp. post from that picture, but it sure doesn't look like one to me. Don't let the screw adjuster fool you, it isn't an automatic indicator of a temp. post. As a matter of fact, every permanent post we use here looks similar to the fraction of the post in the picture, we just generally flip the post the other way so the screw jack is locked into the concrete floor.

Couldn't agree with you more, software in knowledgable hands is a tool, in hands that are not, it is a accident waiting to happen.
