I did manage to fit in a bit of work on the bridge while the sap was boiling too. Study the pictures of the 3/8 scale model of a roof rafter. (Note: the truss is on its side but the fit is very good.) Can you see the button and rod assembly?
Puzzler - Can you explain why the rafters need to be installed this way?
