Simplexx Tilt back corner protection

#1 Post by Askia » Fri Feb 17, 2017 8:34 am

This is my first BFM construction, so I'm very excited, and try to think through everything before building. I'll build the tiltback version, and did a search to get a corner part for the tilt back position. There has to be such corner part which is not 90 degrees, but 135, but couldn't find one yet. How do you solve this case? ...or with some cuts, you make this part out of two "normal" parts?
Thanks!

On my W8s, I just made a cut at the corner so I could open it up wider than 90 degrees.

If you can wait until Tuesday, I can put up a photo of how I did the corner on a W6. (I'm away from home at the moment).

I appreciate that, I'm nowhere that near to that point of the construction! :)

Above, you can see that there is a flat piece of wood for the corner flanges to butt up against, with two locater pads held in place with 22 gauge brads. A piece of wood is placed on top to hold the corner protector down while making the cut, the saw blade set just high enough to almost touch the inside.

I did something very similar to Tom, for my WH8's.

Perhaps no where near as safe though :shock:

I used a slim cutting disc on my angle grinder...
Built:
DR 250: x 2 (melded array) with March 2012 plans.
T39's: 4 x 20" BP102 , 2 x 28" 3012lf.
WH8: x 3 with melded array.
Bunter's Audio and Lighting "like"s would be most appreciated...

Thanks for the photo Tom, that's exactly where I cut mine. Except I just used a pair of hand-held tin snips....
