The Bolt Truss is a truss that consists of two parallel chords connected by a series of diagonal members. The chords are usually metal plates or rods, and the diagonals are usually bolts or rivets. The term "Bolt Truss" is typically used to refer to metal plate trusses, but it can also refer to any truss that uses bolts or rivets to connect its members.

How to install a Bolt Truss
A Bolt Truss is a type of truss that uses bolts to connect the joints. This type of truss is often used in construction and engineering applications. The Bolt Truss is a strong and rigid structure that can support heavy loads. The bolts in a Bolt Truss are typically made of steel or other strong materials.
There are several types of trusses, but the most common are the Pratt truss and the Warren truss. The Pratt truss is characterized by its diagonal members, which are in tension, while the Warren truss has alternating diagonal members in tension and compression.
Assuming you already have your lumber cut to size, the first step is to lay out the bottom chord. This is the horizontal beam that will run along the bottom of your truss. Lay out the lumber for the bottom chord on a level surface and use a tape measure to make sure all the pieces are exactly the same length. Once you have the bottom chord laid out, it's time to start installing your bolts.
Using a drill, create pilot holes for your bolts at each point where two pieces of lumber intersect. These pilot holes should be slightly smaller in diameter than your bolts. Once you have drilled all of your pilot holes, it's time to start threading in your bolts. Begin by threading a bolt into each pilot hole, making sure that the head of the bolt is on the outside of the truss. As you thread in each bolt, add a washer and then tighten with a nut. Continue until all of the pilot holes have been filled with bolts.
Now it's time to install your top chord. The top chord is installed similarly to the bottom chord - simply lay out the lumber on a level surface and drill pilot holes at each point of intersection. Thread in your bolts, add washers, and tighten with nuts until all of the pilot holes are filled.
The next step is to install your webbing - this is what will give your truss its strength and stability. To do this, start by cutting lengths of webbing
