Title: Adjustable Shores Against 4 x 4 Wood Shores
Author(s): E.C. Harding

The type of construction, story heights, sloping floors, etc., will not admit of a general comparison. Shoring operations must be analyzed and studied. The unit operations will not vary materially on different jobs and different types of construction and a combination of these units will present totals that can be used for comparison. On account of these variables it is misleading a t times to say that it costs a certain amount to shore formwork. The following data are presented for the various unit operations.
