Rafter to Tie Beam Connection

Rafter Tie Beam Connection

This rafter to tie beam connection, strong and simple to cut, joins a rafter to a tie beam in a wide variety of truss combinations.  The notch is what creates the strength in this connection.  It uses the roof pitch on the inside edge and a 45-degree angle on the outside of the notch.
