I'm building a screen porch addition. When the concrete guys set the all-threads in the cement they misaligned them. The post bases I'm using (Simpson ABA44) are adjustable to some extent, but there are still two of them that are off by about an inch. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thanks for any tips!

Got a reply on another thread. I figured I'd have to somehow drill out the off-set all threads, or cut them flush and then reset new ones and got confirmation, so that's where I'll be today!

that should be j-bolt - foundation anchors and not allthread, unless he bent the angle into it .

easiest way to fix it is to call him and tell him to come back and do it right.

probably hardest would be to drill right next to these and epxoxy set new ones but that is one option.

or you might be able to redrill the post base hardware to fit.

Excellence is its own reward!
