Easy Set Table and  Hardware 
 
The easy set jig system design is such that it will provide for fast and efficient truss set-up and assembly and this combined with the easy set hardware, which is lightweight and easy to handle, a means that special truss designs are no longer a problem, since easy set hardware can be set up for a variety of truss configuration and can be used with all sizes of timber.
 
Because of the low cost, the multiple set of Easy Set Jig Hardware becomes practical, adding to the efficiency of the busy fabricator.
