I saw it in the thread of another term request, but did not see a translation for this term.

I am thinking "corner posts", but am only guessing.

Thanks

Notes to answerer
Asker: yes, I think Tennet made this word up themselves - I'll go with "mast feet" for the Fußeckstiele and with "corner posts" for the "Eckstiele" - they use both in the text - thanks so much - glad I asked
