Simpson post base
I have some Simpson CB66 column bases installed and waiting for me to throw some 6X6 posts in. The problem is, the CB66 are built with 5.5" dimensions and the 6X6's I have are all true 6X6. Anyone ever use these? Am i supposed to use a sledge hammer to gently pursuade the 8' tall posts into place or should I notch the posts to recess the CB66? Anyone?
