Going to be using a new set of pump jack scaffolding this week but one aspect of setting up still has us scratching our heads, what's anybody done for this situation?
How to brace uprights when working on a finished product, ie. siding?
We've seen a couple solutions;
1: Brace at the roof line through roof decking, but what to do on a gable end?
2: Position uprights in line with open windows, place horizontal 2X4's on the interior side spanning past both jambs, attach pump jack brace through window.
But this also doesn't answer for bracing the bottom other than to the foundation maybe, and any other desired mid height bracing. Which I know plenty will say "Don't need either of em'". I'd rather hear from those that are a bit more safety minded, I've got far to many years until retirement.
What ideas are out there?
