The F6 is a 5-spoke "fan plate" with 6" wide spokes. Fan plates are used to connect the bottom tie beam of a truss to two struts and a king post. 6" wide plates look good on timbers ranging in width from 6" to 12". 3/16" steel is a good choice for purely decorative plates. 1/4" is better for applications that need structural support.
