Question

Stud Show Sizing


Soooo did the holes for the 1 1/2 pipe for a drain, double studs. Ordered the Stud Shoes from home Depot and bammmm they dont fit. The original wood in the house 1945 is just a tad wider than current studs.

Suggestions?

Re: Stud Show Sizing


Before the pipe went in you could have used a jigsaw, plane, occilating saw, even plunge cutting with a circular and finishishing it out with a wood chisel to narrow it up the needed amount.
Here's a picture of a stud shoe.

I have not put the pipe through yet so if it is acceptable to put the stud on a diet to get the shoe to fit then that can be done.

Re: Stud Show Sizing


Take a small amount off each side.
All your doing is reducing it to the size of a modern stud.

Re: Stud Show Sizing


The wood use to actually be a 2 inch by 4 inch cut.

The only time you need stud shoes is if it is a bearing wall. Other wise nail plates will do.
