called *gagyou 丸桁 or gangyou. A round eave purlin that is supported by stepped bracket
complexes *tokyou 斗きょう
to bear the weight of extended eaves *noki-no-de
軒の出. Used in the 7c and 8c. The bracket complex varies from a simple, one-step
bracket complex *degumi
出組, extended from the wall of the building up, to a six-step complex *mutesaki
tokyou 六手先斗きょう. The dashigeta may receive added support from
two more bracket complexes stacked one above the other on each tail rafter
*odaruki 尾垂木. The
lower bearing block supports a bracket arm called *hakarihijiki 秤肘木,
with bearing blocks on each end giving it a balanced appearance. Another
bearing block, placed on the tail rafter, carries a bracket arm on which
three bearing blocks are set. A bracket arm called *sanehijiki
実肘木 is inserted into these bearing blocks and directly receives the dashigeta.
Also read degeta. See *keta
2 A simple gate that has purlins parallel to the ridge *munagi 棟木. These purlins are also called dashigeta. They are supported by a short transverse beam called *udegi 腕木 or udegeta 腕桁. A simple bracket arm *hijiki 肘木, is often placed beneath it for additional support. See *kidomon 木戸門.
