what are the dimensions of the truss you want to build? it is best to make the bottom chord end cut match the pitch of the top chord for the truss plate design. depending on the span the plywood gussets can transfer the load with a gap without difficulty. in most cases trusses have to be built and certified by a licensed company. I got by building 48’ clear span trusses for a roof that was torn off in a tornado and the city passed them without certification. I made my own truss press and have built many trusses for uninspected remodels and buildings.
