    You could replace it yourself. Jack up the corner, cut out the old post and put in a new one.

    Wanna give us a close-up pic of the top? I'm not seeing the bolts that you mention.

    Considerations when painting joists & bottom of underlayment in unfinished ceilings

    The way I see it; the sprayer is a time and effort saver. There are lots of nooks and crannies in your project. However, if you have the time and enjoy the craft.....

    Can you see light through the crack? I might try pre-drilling and setting in a couple of bolts. Go all the way through and put washers on both sides. You could countersink them for a more "finished" look. Do both posts to make it look planned.

    Problem with the media.... ALL media..... is that they have to make noise all the time (fill the airwaves), so they take whatever bit of info they can find and they shout repeatedly until the next bit of info surfaces. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    Well thought out Flyover, and you may have hit the nail on the head (appropriate for houserepairtalk). It explains how a person (even a scientist) can say one thing in February based on what is known, and then have to change course in April when additional facts show themselves. We are all...

    Question for the electricians on here
