Ellis Steel Shores


Anyone familiar with these?

https://ellismanufacturing.com/produ...ant=1708793601

Need to out a few in my CS to lift up some sagging joists. The manufacturer tells to rest them on concrete pads, but don't give much specs. Lowe's has 16x8 pads for less than $2 each, but I'm afraid they will crack. Should I cast my own?

Precast ones are pretty good as long as the weight is level and its set on a level base.

Thanks. Do you have an example? Like a web link? Found some at Lowe's, but not sure if they're the right thing.
