The wood used for framing in my house is very old (1911) and I've noticed that for any given existing dimensional size, the boards seem to run about 1/8-3/16" larger than what is typical these days. That being said, the standard joist hangers that you can buy are just a skotch on the small side. Does anyone know of a source for hangers that have slightly wider mouths?
