Heavy duty bracket?


Hi,

Does anyone know where I can find a heavy-duty bracket (right-angle) like the one in the attached photo.

For scale, that's a 4x4 it's attached to.

(I'm not concerned about the metal spacer at the bottom of the post, keeping it off the concrete.)

Thanks!

Looks like it might be a cut-off of Angle Iron.

Re: Heavy duty bracket?


That looks like just steel angle (4 x 4 x 1/4) with some holes drilled in it. You can get some at any steel supplier or even Home Depot (used for lintels). If you only need one 4" long piece, try someplace like a Metals Supermarket, or similar. They might even drill the holes for you if you give them a sketch.

( If you buy the longer piece from Home Depot and cut it with a hacksaw, I guarantee you will wish you had found somebody to cut you off a 4" long piece on a bandsaw. )

Any local metal fabrication/welding shop can either sell you one off the shelf or make one for one fairly quick and cheap.

I needed a bracket like that and was able to purchase a "Z" bracket and cut it in two 90* halves. The angles were close enough to 90* to work.
I was reinforcing the inside of a 90 where two doubled 12" beams met as a corner.
