If you have aluminum ladder jacks you can use them on the outside of the ladders. If you have the old fashioned finger pinching steel ladder jacks scrap them and buy a set of aluminum ones.

With the ladder and plank on the outside of the ladders I'm not sure you'll need the stabilizers.

With the plank set up on the outside you'll either need to climb over it which gets kind of harry or you'll need a third ladder to set up over or next to your plank. I strongly suggest using the third ladder. It's much safer than crawling over the walk board. Place the third ladder on the fascia on the side you're not working on.

That is what I have now is the aluminum ladder jacks. They did not get the plank out quite far enough. It looks like I might have to use the stabilizers. I do use the third ladder, it is a lot easier than crawling over that plank. I am kicking around the idea of making a set of stabilizers that will get me out far enough. I saw one years ago that the man who used it liked it better than the store bought ones. But I need this fascia done before winter sets in. Thanks for the suggestions, looks like we were on the same page.
