Where to find Truss nailplates/gangnails
Do any of you good folks know where I can purchase the press in nail plates that are used to put trusses together? On the Simpson Strongtie site they have what they call a "mending plate" but they only come in three sizes, 1x4,2x4 and 3x6. I need a larger assortment of sizes.I have searched all over the web but cant find anyone who sells them. Thanks for your help.

Truss Plates
I don't if this is of any help but my husband works for a lumber company here in Colorado and they manufacture their own trusses.
The truss plates are part of the engineering of the trusses and they get them from Alpine Engineering in Texas.

Good Luck!
