That would work, but why re-invent the wheel? The 6" wide adjustable brackets have been around for decades and they are only about $20 each. If we don't charge enough to be able to afford brackets to work off from, we don't belong in the slate business. Just my opinion.

When did I ask for measurements or dimensions?

Actually Kurtis, the brackets have passed muster on many occasions when OSHA has visited our sites. As far as offering measurements and dimensions, a true slate roofer can fabricate them with ease, each range of pitch involves another design. Tips: Appropriate angle for roof; Top plate long enough to accept 2 planks; Bottom plate long enough to cover 4 courses of shingles.

I will probably be showing some in the next Traditional Roofing magazine as well (with measurements, etc.).

Those are OSHA approved, right :)

Someone posted a picture of their handmade roof jacks a while back, but I can't find it. Does anyone have the link to that thread?
Thanks.
