The purpose of this project is to design, build, and test a tool that will aim to align two roofing trusses that are intended to be connected together, but do not align properly with each other. Often times when building these types of trusses, two or more must be stacked and nailed together, face to face. This requires the bottom edge of both trusses to be aligned before being nailed together, and if this cannot be done, one or more of the trusses must be dissembled and fixed.  Because there are no commercially available tools made specifically for this purpose, this unique tool aims to be the first of its kind specifically designed to fix this problem, which can cost a single company thousands of dollars per year in wasted time, resources, and money.
