Carpentry and Joinery, Volume 2 (3rd Edition)
Brian Porter, Chris Tooke
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Carpentry and Joinery 2 is the second in a series of three books, which together provide an authoritative and thoroughly practical guide to carpentry and joinery for students following City & Guilds and CITB courses, NVQ candidates, and students working towards an Institute of Carpenters qualification. This book is also ideal for a wide range of amateur and professional woodworkers.
Volume 2 builds on the fundamental knowledge introduced in volume 1, by covering more advanced topics and procedures, including machine tools. Essential ‘back-up’ topics are presented throughout the text to revise the key aspects covered in volume 1. The reader is shown how to apply this basic theory to actual carpentry and joinery practice in a highly illustrated, easily accessible text.
The third edition has been fully updated in line with changes to the Building Regulations and current legislation, the third edition also incorporates developments in current best practice, with a comprehensive match to the latest qualifications in Wood Occupations.
which type of strutting is used, the end of the line will need a packing between the last joist and the wall. Care must be taken if folding wedges are used for this purpose, as overtightening could dislodge the blockwork. 6.4 Notching joists Unlike timber ground floors, where services can be run under the joists, upper-floor services must run either parallel with the joists or, when this is not possible, through them. The only alternative is to run them above the floor on the walls – doorways
fence. A purpose made movable fence is shown in Fig. 8.17. 140 Roofs of equal pitch Fig. 8.14 Proportional millimetre rise to metre run of rafter The geometrical means by which roof bevels and member lengths are obtained may require that roof sizes be scaled down. Scaling down is necessary with the steel square, but only to the extent of determining the number of millimetres the roof rises for every metre run of common rafter (for an equally pitched roof, run ϭ 1⁄2 ϫ span). Figure 8.14 shows
must be adjusted accordingly; if it is longer than the sole-plate, marking-off can be carried out with the timber laid across or down the room’s length.

head-plate or housing. Alternatively, use a pinch rod (see Chapter 1, Fig. 1.7). If a door or other opening is required, studs will be left out or cut short and, in the case of door openings, the sole-plate will be cut away. Alternatively, if the studs run through to floor level, the appropriate allowance will be made as shown in Fig. 9.5. (see also Fig. 9.9.). The lengths of the sole-plate, head-plate, and end studs should be shorter than the lengths required to fit between the floor, ceiling,
fitted with a sealed unit (reservoir) containing an oil-based liquid. Also included is an adjusting screw for zero setting prior to use. Inside the hand-held level indicator unit is a high-performance measuring device with a numeric digital readout that works in conjunction with the liquid within the drum. Levels are detected by means of the pressure difference between the fluid level in the drum and that at the hand-held device. Levels are transferred to different areas or points by
