Real truss plates are different than the POS ones sold retail.
I have a friend who owns a truss yard...roof & floor trusses.
In a production situation, the truss pieces are laid out on a truss
assembly table with guides, blocks & stops.
The truss plates are "tacked" in their proper locations by a single
corner with a sharp hammer blow.
A large stiff "roller" that spans the complete truss is made to travel
over it...pressing the plates home. (keep your fingers clear!)
Mitek is the mfr of plates my friend uses... they are the "biggie" in
the industry (at least as far as I'm aware)
